Every year I plan to do Groundhog Day activities with my multi-age homeschoolers, and then the day sneaks up on my and we end up doing very little! This year, I’ve finally got a plan AHEAD of time.

Groundhog Day Activities

Groundhog Day is fun for everyone – from littles to bigs. My homeschoolers are in 6th, 4th, 2nd, and kindergarten, and while many of these activities are geared for younger children, there are a few interesting books and resources for my oldest kids as well. I love finding homeschooling inspiration based on current events or holidays. It’s possible to incorporate reading, writing, and math, and fun into the day with just a little prep work!
