Groundhog Day falls on February 2nd every year. It is said that when the groundhog comes out of his burrow, if he sees his shadow, he will go back underground. If this happens there will be 6 more weeks of winter. If the groundhog comes out of his burrow and doesn’t see his shadow, winter will be over sooner. The anticipation of what the groundhog will see when he shows his face is fun for children and adults. The following are some crafts that children will love to make on Groundhog Day.
