Groundhog's Day Crafts, Groundhog's Day Preschool Activities, Groundhog's Day Kindergarten Art Projects

Groundhog's Day. Groundhog's Day is celebrated in the USA on February 2 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. On February 2, it is believed that the groundhog comes out of his burrow. If the sun is shining and he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If it is cloudy and the groundhog cannot see his shadow, he will come out, and it is a sign of an early spring. We created some great Groundhog's Day materials for you and your children to celebrate this fun event. Samples of our more than 40 Groundhog's Day crafts, preschool and kindergarten art projects, games, and printables available in our KidsSoup Resource Library:

Groundhog Rhymes and Songs:


Groundhog Day book suggestionShadows Big and Shadows Small
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Shadows big and shadows small
I see shadows on the wall
Shadows here and shadows there
Lots of shadows everywhere
All the shadows that I see
Big or small they don't scare me.
Shadows. shadows—oh what fun.
I can make them in the sun
I will make some big and small
I make shadows by the light
In my room so late at night.


Gregory's Shadow (Picture Puffins)

I See a Little Groundhog
(Tune: I'm A Little Teapot)

I see a little groundhog, furry and brown,
He's popping up to look around.
If he sees his shadow, down he'll go.
Six more weeks of winter—oh, no!

Groundhog's Day

Groundhog's Day, I looked around,
Saw my shadow on the ground
Yes, I saw my shadow, when I took a peek
That means winter six more weeks!

Mr. Groundhog
(Tune: Frere Jacques)

Mr. Groundhog, Mr. Groundhog.
Are you there? Are you there?
Will you see your shadow?
We all want to know
On this day, Groundhog Day.

Five Groundhogs

The first groundhog digs a home in the fall,
And curls up all winter rolled up like a ball.
The second groundhog comes out of his lair.
On February second to get some fresh air.
The third groundhog looks up at the sun.
He then sees his shadow and goes on the run.
The fourth groundhog at his dark shadow peeks,
He goes into his deep home for six more weeks.
The fifth groundhog hopes that skies will be gray
So that he'll know that spring's on its way.
