Celebrate Dr. Seuss with a Crafty Kids' Activity!

And, March 2 is? … Dr. Seuss’s birthday! Celebrate everything Seuss with a few (or more than a few) fun-filled family activities.
Art activities

(This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure statement for more information).

Get crafty with the kids, creating art activities based on favorites such as ‘The Cat in the Hat’ or ‘Green Eggs in Ham’ or join in on a Read Across America event (schools, libraries and community organizations hold this event annually on March 2). If you’re not exactly sure where to start or what to do, begin with a book. Pick up your child’s favorite Seuss story or grab your own childhood ‘best book pick’ and introduce your little reader to a new-to-her tale. A few favorites to try:

Green Eggs and Ham
The Cat in the Hat
My Many Colored Days
Oh, the Places You'll Go 
The Lorax 
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish 
What Pet Should I Get? 
Horton Hears a Who

What else can you do to celebrate Dr. Seuss?

You can also:

·        Draw your own Seuss-style book together, using paper and crayons.

·        Make paper bag puppets for a pretend play session with some of your child’s favorite characters.

·        Storyboard out one of the books – comic book style.

·        Turn a Seuss story into a one act play. Record your child acting out the characters.

·        Play Seuss-style dress-up. Raid the dress-up bin and create imaginative character costumes.

·        Cook a snack (or a meal) based on a book – such as green eggs and ham.
