My kids loved this fun scavenger hunt we did last year for Groundhog’s Day! Even better, each clue has a fun fact about Groundhog’s Day! I even had them each decorate little Groundhog bags and I used them for the final “treasure” at the end of the hunt!! Each clue even tells you were you should place your next clue…that made it super easy!!!
To get all these clues and printable groundhogs just click here and you will be re-directed to an awesome website called “Preschool Alphabet by Lindsy”!! These are FREE printables! There are even some blank ones if you want to make up some of your own clues.
Clue #1 … (Read to the kids) “Today we’re going on a hunt to find a special treasure. Your first clue is … look on the calendar.”
Clue #2 … (Hide the clue on the Feb. 2 square) “February 2nd is Groundhog’s Day. Look on the computer for the next clue.”
Clue #3 … (Have this picture on the screen) “Groundhogs are covered with gray-brown fur. They have short ears, a short tail, short legs and are very quick! Show me how quick you are! Look for your next clue in the fridge by the veggies!
Clue #4 … (In the produce drawer of the fridge) “Groundhogs eat lots of greens, fruits and vegetables and very little water. They get water from eating leaves. Try eating a vegetable like a groundhog! Then look on the scale in the bathroom.”
Clue #7 … (Near the soap) “Groundhogs are very clean animals. Insects don’t bother them and germs leave them alone because they are so clean! Can you clean your hands? Look on your bed for the next clue.”
*I changed this to under the kitchen sink as I wanted the “under the kitchen table” for my last clue!
Clue #9 … (under the kitchen sink) “On Groundhog’s Day, a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil comes out of his burrow and looks around. If he sees his shadow he goes back inside for 6 more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, then spring is coming early! Look under the couch cushions for your last clue!”
Clue #10 … (under kitchen table) “Congratulations, you found your treasure! Can you tell me two things you know about groundhogs?”
Here’s a few pictures of the kids running around the house looking for the next clue…it was super fun!
I picked up some adorable heart shaped gumball machines as the treasure and put a few little prizes in the bags they each decorated!!
Hope you have as much fun as we did with this super easy printable Groundhog’s Day Scavenger hunt!
