Groundhog Day Puzzles for Kids

Crosswords, Jigsaw Puzzles and Other Games For Young Puzzlers

By

Groundhog Day, a custom introduced by German immigrants in Pennsylvania, is celebrated every February 2nd in the United States and Canada. According to this tradition, the groundhog emerges from his burrow on the 2nd of February. If the day is a clear and sunny one, the groundhog will see his shadow and scurry back into his den, which is supposed to predict cold and snowy weather for the rest of the winter season. Should the day be cloudy and/or rainy, then the groundhog will supposedly leave his burrow, in which case one should prepare for an early spring.

Groundhog Day is an enjoyable holiday for children, whose imaginations are sparked by the idea of furry creatures with the ability to predict future weather. For entertaining kids' puzzles and games with themes related to this amusing holiday, check out the links below.
