Groundhog coloring pages and worksheets can help you teach your kids more about Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day happens on the February 2nd every year, about halfway through winter. The groundhog emerges, and if he sees his shadow, he retreats back to his hole, and we’re headed for another 6 weeks of winter. If he doesn’t spring is on its way. The tradition goes all the way back to 1887, in Punxsutawney Pennsylvania. Does groundhog day work? Well, it’s considered the ‘official unofficial’ weather prediction, so we’ll use our best judgement. BUT now you can color the groundhog and celebrate our fun furry friend.
