February brings about Groundhog Day. On this day, many gather around the TV to see if Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow. If so, legend says we’re in for six more weeks of winter. If not, legend says spring is on its way!
Personally, I’m hoping for no shadow! I’m not a fan of the cold winter weather and snow we’ve seen this month.
This list of Groundhog Day activities for toddlers features books, crafts, snacks, and more. Everything you’ll need to celebrate Groundhog Day with your littlest learners.
