Toddler Celebrations: Groundhog Day

Activities

Shadow Play: If it's warm enough, celebrate by taking your child outside to look at his shadow.  Look at the shadows that other objects make, too.

Shadow Puppets: If you'd rather stay inside, make shadow puppets for your child.   This article from Ehow.com gives directions for making cardboard shadow puppets.

Pop-Up Groundhog: Draw a small groundhog or print a clip art one.  Glue it to a popsicle stick.  Cut a small slit in the bottom of a paper cup.  Stick the stick through the hole, so the groundhog can "hide" in the cup, or pop up.  Show your child how to push the groundhog out of the hole.

Crafts

Groundhog Coloring Page: This site has a cute Groundhog Day coloring sheet for your toddler to color. It even has a poem.

Books

Groundhog Day!, by Gail Gibbons (This book has a lot of words, but it would still be good for showing your toddler the pictures as you talk about Groundhog Day.  Plus, you might learn something yourself.  I did!)
