Tomorrow, March 2nd, would have been Dr. Seuss’ birthday and since he is a beloved hero of mine, it’s got me in a Seussical mood. I want to do something fun and silly with the kids tomorrow since we have read and LOVED so many of his books. To keep his memory alive and have fun with the kids, here are 4 ideas I came up with for a Dr. Seuss Celebration.
Read and Explore. Dr. Seuss wrote more than 40 books, so pick your favorites and spend some time in the wacky world he created. My favorites are The Lorax, Green Eggs and Ham, Fox in Sox, and One Fish, Two Fish. If you don’t have any of your own Dr. Seuss books, no problem, just grab some at the library!
Cook Up Some Fun! I love cooking with my kids and it’s very easy to entice them into the kitchen to make some Seussical snacks and treats. It’s the perfect time to spend time together and talk about your favorite Dr. Seuss books. The Kitchen Fun with my 3 Sons blog has some adorable, easy Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Pops or she’s got a healthier Fruit Pop version. This Dr. Seuss breakfast from the Make Myself at Home blog looks delish!
Take a Trip to Seussville. This fun website is dedicated to all things Seuss. You and your kids can play games, meet the wacky characters and learn more about the author.
Crafty like a Fox. There are so many cute Dr. Seuss inspired crafts out there that it was hard to choose just a few. But the Danielle’s Place blog has some cute Lorax crafts that are super easy for kids to make. I love Apples and ABC’s Truffula Trees art. Finally, this Fox in Sox paper bag hand puppet from Vanessa’s Blog would be perfect to make and then read the book out loud with your kids.
Which is your favorite Dr. Seuss character or book?
