I think Groundhog Day is one of the most creative and unique minor holidays we celebrate each year. Being from Pennsylvania, I can’t help but be proud of our tradition (though I confess, I have not made the journey to see the furry little fella on his big day). After all, how many times do you get “cute,” “furry,” and “rodent” all in a description of a holiday celebrated across the country? If you want to jump start your kids’ creativity, grab these FREE Groundhog Day Writing Prompts.
