happy birthday, dr. seuss

This Sunday will be the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Both of my school aged children are doing fun activities in school today. They have special people that work in town coming to read to them among other things. I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew I had to make it for their classes. It was SO easy, just took a little time to cut out the mustaches! I didn't have any felt so I just used sheets of foam.

Then, yesterday afternoon, I thought it might be fun to make a Dr. Seuss themed lunch for the children as well. I printed out tiny pictures of book covers and attached them to an appropriate snack. So "One Fish, Two Fish" was attached to some goldfish crackers, and I made a jello cup into a hat for the "Cat in the Hat." I made some A, B, C sandwiches for his book "A, B, C" and I even made a thing 1 and thing 2 water bottles. I had some small notebooks that look like tiny Dr. Seuss books which I wrapped and attached the book "Happy Birthday, To You." I hope the children will be excited when they open their lunchboxes today! It was fun to make and may become a tradition!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Love the Lorax oranges! Too cute!

    Tomorrow we will be having green eggs and ham for supper :) Last year I made Cat in the Hat biscuits (I took biscuit dough, tinted half red, then alternated colors).
