The Cat in the Hat & other Seuss pinsThursday, February 28, 2013
This Saturday would have been Dr. Seuss' 109th birthday (Theodor Seuss Geisel). Known for classics like How the Grinch Stole Christmas and other beloved books, Dr. Seuss's birthday not only marks a day to advance reading initiatives across the country, but to also engage your children in more reading and bringing some of his books to life. I've scoured Pinterest and brought together some pretty fun ideas to make this year's March 2 extra Seussical for the littles in your life!
So grab a book, get ready to pin, and away we go!
Need something that can double as cute decor for a playroom? Check out this felt storyboard about The Lorax - one of my personal favorites by the way. In keeping with that orange-fellowed theme, what about your own Truffula trees or even a fun math game to stretch their minds. You might even consider this fun snack for lunchtime.
Another favorite of mine has to be The Cat in the Hat. Consider this site with fun activities, including one where you can do a photoshoot with your children and interchange different accessories. Need a Cat in the Hat Clock? You might even consider letting the kids do their own stacking to create these Cat hats on cupcakes.
An easy hand craft helps bring One Fish, Two Fish to life while this site might just be your own stop shop for all things red, white, and Seuss! In keeping with the Seuss theme, I just picked up the book Oh the Places You'll Go at Target since they are on sale this week and plan to have my son's teachers sign it at the end of each year - all the way until he turns 18 as a sweet reminder of his school-aged years (thank you, Pinterest!) If you're feeling especially ambitious, why not whip up a Dr. Seuss cake to celebrate!
