4 Groundhog Day Coloring Pages (free printables)

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

The first official Groundhog Day celebration took place on February 2, 1887, in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, with Phil, the Punxsutawney groundhog. The kids are going to love this fun holiday and enjoy learning all about it with our free Groundhog Day coloring pages.

According to tradition, if a groundhog comes out of its hole on this day and sees its shadow, it gets scared and runs back into its burrow, predicting six more weeks of winter weather; no shadow means an early spring. Check out our free Spring handprint art though to put you in the mood early!

The annual holiday did not originate from the film! But has roots in pre-Christian traditions, with Candlemas, and was brought to America by German immigrants. Check out how the Germans celebrate Christmas with our free Christmas in Germany coloring pages.

You may not want to take the prediction too seriously though as Punxsutawney Phil’s success rate at predicting the weather is only around 39%. I think you are also going to enjoy our free preschool weather worksheets.

We love creating free kids coloring pages, and we either use them as a supplement for a lesson we are studying or to calm the mood! Coloring is a great way for them to refocus and relax.
