This fun, FREE Printable Groundhog Day Word Search puzzle contains 23 words relating to the holiday, its legend and the weather.
Groundhog Day is almost here! I always think fondly of February 2nd because it was my kindergarten teacher’s birthday. All these years later I still think of her every year on Groundhog Day.
To celebrate this year, I made this fun Groundhog Day Word Search Puzzle.
The Groundhog Day Word Find features 23 words all related to this somewhat unusual holiday. The banks, post office and schools are all open, but it’s a holiday nonetheless as we all wait to see if the groundhog sees his shadow when he emerges from his burrow.
Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow we’ll have six more weeks of winter, but if he doesn’t then spring should be arriving early.
