We’re having so much fun celebrating Dr. Seuss–reading lots of fun Seuss books, coloring some pictures, watching some “Cat in the Hat”, and making a few fun crafts:
and Thing 1 and Thing 2 handprints (inspired by this Stuff by Ash post)!
Aren’t they SO cute?! I love them! 🙂
In the post about “Reading Week“, I shared quite a few Seuss-tastic sites from which to get fun Dr. Seuss activity ideas. But, I also wanted to highlight some of the great things floating around the “blogosphere”. Here are some of my favorites:
Adorable Horton clovers from First Born Insanity.
A Lorax Truffula Forest from Frugal Family Fun!
A “Ten Apples Up on Top” early preschool counting activity from I Can Teach My Child.
Simply adorable Seuss blocks from Sugar Bee Craft Edition.
Make an easy Cat in the Hat headband from Roots and Wings.
Or, if you are looking for a fancier Cat Hat, try this one from Mama Lusco!
And, if you’re looking for a whole unit’s worth of activities, 2 Teaching Mommies and What the Teacher Wants have developed great ones, complete with free printables for you!! Fantastic!
**POST UPDATE: If you’re looking for even more crafts & activities ideas, I’ve rounded up “the ultimate Dr. Seuss ideas list” with over 75 crafts, activities, and fun foods included. Click here ——> Dr. Seuss list
