Groundhog Day Party
How to have a party in celebration of Groundhog Day
Who has a Groundhog day party other than those who live in Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania? Maybe you! If you're seriously considering a party for a kid who has a
birthday on or around Groundhog Day (February 2), then we have some funny ways
to celebrate groundhog day. One thing's for sure, a Groundhog party will warm up a
chilly February day, even if you get a visit from the Snow Queen herself when the
Groundhog sees his shadow.
Here's how to celebrate Groundhog Day Party for kids:
- Make it a breakfast party. Invite guests for pancakes with Punxsutawney Phil.
Pancake breakfasts are clearly part of the North American tradition of
Groundhog Day and Dad can sport the Groundhog day hat. "Punxsutawney
Phil" the most famous groundhog of the day never looked so good in his little
top hat, and Dad in his Groundhog day ha, top right, will help spring come with
a smile! (In Canada, the groundhog's name is "Wiarton Willy.")
- Send some Groundhog love by e-mail. Six more weeks of winter can be fun. This
kids will enjoy sending a free Groundhog day eCard greeting to a relative or
friend named Phil. This idea from mypunchbowl.com.
- Make it a Groundhog Day to rememBEAR.Decorate your teddy bear with the Build-
a-bear hat, pictured left. It would make a perfect birthday gift, and is just $6.00.
Look also for the matching Build-a-Bear T-shirt.
- Talk about the weather. Decorate with Groundhog day punch-outs, left. They're
also great for teachers to help them educate about weather patterns and
superstitions about groundhogs on this February day.
- Play shadow games. If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow there will be six
more weeks of Winter. If he doesn't see a shadow, then Spring will come early!
The kids can play games with their shadows with a flashlight and tell funny
- Get into a time warp. Cuddle up as a family to watch the classic romantic comedy
made in 1993 starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, right. Groundhog Day is
about a weatherman caught in a personal time warp.
- Read "The Groundhog Day book of Facts and Fun" by Wendie C. Old. This is the
ultimate book if you want directions for putting together a Groundhog Day
party. It's also a book perfect for teachers because it's packed with terrific
groundhog day facts.
