According to tradition, if it’s a sunny day and Gordy sees his shadow, he’ll return to his burrow for six more weeks of winter, but if he does not see a shadow … expect an early spring! Fun activities for the event include downloading a Groundhog Coloring Sheet to choose if Gordy will predict either six more weeks of winter or an early spring. Download a coloring sheet and proudly display the artwork in a window to show support for Gordy.

The ceremony also includes Groundhog Bingo! Download a bingo card and follow along during the festivities, marking off words as you hear the ceremony hosts say them.
