Ground Hog’s Day Game

Ground Hog’s Day is one of the fun American Traditions I love to teach my kids about. While we won’t be heading out to Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney to see the groundhog come out of hiding, we’ll find other ways to enjoy this fun tradition… like this easy-to-make “Spring is Coming” Groundhog’s Day Game! This printable board game can be printed and cut-out for one-time use… or you can use a DVD case to keep it put together for next year!

Groundhog Day Board Game - Spring is Coming! Fits into a standard-size DVD case for easy storage!

To make the game you’ll need:
Groundhog Day Board Game Pieces printed onto cardstock
DVD Case
Groundhog Day Board Game DVD Case Cover printed onto regular paper
Scissors
Brad (paper fastener)
Hot Glue or double-stick tape
Craft Knife

The game is simple. All players begin at start. They take turns spinning, and move the number of spaces indicated. If they land on a space with text, they follow those instructions. My 3 year old already loves this game, and we have played it together several times!
