Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss, Crafts, Activities, and a Linky

Dr. Seuss Birthday is March 2nd. We have been doing  all kinds of Seuss activities to celebrate.  Not only that , we are joining a group of fabulous bloggers who are also posting Dr. Seuss activities .  Cool beans right?

First off here is what's on our book shelves this week.


I hid Dr. Seuss books all over the house and we did a book hunt scavenger hunt.


Once we found the books we enjoyed reading them.

 Isn't he just too cute?

We made a Cat In The Hat HAT .  That was a big hit and easy.  Google cat in the hat printable and you'll find a ton.  I printed a hat, and gave him some red paint to paint stripes.  Then I cut up some paper lunch sacks and stapled together in a circle to go around his hat and also stapled the coloring sheet to it.


We also painted some coloring sheets , glued them to paper bags and had a puppet show.
We used our Little Tikes Playhouse and pretended we were In A People House. 

Here's a story to give you a giggle.  I was in the play house playing with C, and I called my daughter in to take some photos of our puppet show.  When I got ready to write this post I looked through them and thought what on Earth did she think I wanted pictures of?  She thought I had gotten in the house simply to avoid having my picture taken.   Ha!

How About some Horton Hears A Who Love.

Horton Hears A Who Cupcakes...bake a cake mix and ice cupcakes regularly.  Add Pink Cotton Candy.  We had some left over Horton Hears A Who  from our Seuss Baby Shower so we cut them in circles and glued them to the front.  Fun Right? And Yummy!

Next we made Elephant Ears... =)  These are perfect to get kids Cooking in The Kitchen. 

 Thanks for joining us to say Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!  I hope you enjoyed our activities.
