While certainly not one of the most important holidays on our calendar we do enjoy a bit of fun on this day. It is a great chance to focus on weather or other related topics, especially with young children. I think what mine enjoy most about Groundhog Day is the pancakes. We found a cute idea for making pancakes that look like ground hogs several years ago and the children really enjoy them.
With small children you could spend the day or even the week learning about seasons or weather. Another great focus would be on ground hogs and other similar mammals. My older students will mostly continue on with their regular studies but we will be adding in a fun writing prompt about Ground Hog day. However, with my three year old we are going to spend some time talking about the weather with a few fun sensory and art projects.
We will also enjoy reading some great books and maybe sneak in a Magic School Bus episode on weather. I also found this great free groundhog art lesson. This is one of those days that we get to enjoy a bit of fun without a lot of added stress or expectations.
