5 Ways to Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday
26 Feb 2014
Despite the fact that my little ones think that Dr. Seuss is their pediatrician, my twins were strangely excited when I told them we would be celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2nd. There are so many fun things to do to honor all that Dr. Seuss represents. Here are just a few ideas:
1. Attend special events at your local educational centers and bookstores in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Lakeshore Learning and Barnes & Noble both have Dr. Seuss book readings in the next week or so.
2. Eat Dr. Seuss inspired foods. Allow your kids to indulge in the traditional Green Eggs and Ham meal. Make Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes. Decorate cookies with a Cat in the Hat.
3. Make Dr. Seuss crafts. My favorites include using handprints to make Thing 1 and Thing 2 hair, or One Fish, Two Fish. In addition to making crafts centered on the famous Dr. Seuss characters, a great idea would be to make personalized bookmarks to save your spot while you get through all the amazing stories.
4. Snuggle under the blankets or go to the library and read all the Dr. Seuss classics. Repeat the best lines – over and over again, knowing that those around you can hear.
5. Play with anything Dr. Seuss – flashcards, stuffed toys, crayons and more! Celebrate the greatness of Dr. Seuss by letting your child’s imagination run wild!
”Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
Happy Birthday to You Dr. Seuss!!
