Dr Seuss ~ Activities for the Week of March 2nd

The Cat in the Hat

The Week of March 2nd is Dr Seuss Week... and his birthday is on March 2nd! It's time for lots of rhyming, colorful crafts & a Birthday Party! Yay!!!

Do you have a favorite Dr Seuss book from when you were child? I've been trying to think about which one was my favorite and I have to say I think it was "The Cat in the Hat" - I loved Thing One and Thing Two!

I asked Hailey and she said hers was The Foot Book. On this post you will find some FUN ideas I found online (yep - Pinterest) as well as a FEW of my other Favorite Homeschool Bloggers websites. Feel free to use this list to plan your own FUN & exciting Dr Seuss Week!

A Colorful Project (discuss the colors Red & White). (original idea from The Mailbox)
You will need:
  • a copy of the cat pattern (cat and tie)
  • 9x12 piece of construction paper
  • red/white construction paper scraps
  • crayons & glue sticks
Encourage your 3-5 year old preschoolers to help tear the paper scraps which will help with hand coordination and fine motor skills. Younger children you may want to have everything cut out - unless you have one that enjoys cutting & tearing & has a good attention span. =D


Create Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts - here is one from Amazon - but I've also seen them on tank tops, long sleeve shirts and more. You could even make up your own using those printable fabric iron on sheets. =D This would be darling for a family - thing one, thing 2, thing 3 - mom thing & dad thing!

  1. I love this post and I LOVE Dr. Suess. My favorite book when I was a child was "And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street". I used to lay on my bed and read it before I was in kindergarten, dreaming all the things that went down the street in that book were going down MY street :-) {I had a very vivid imagination}. Found you via the HOF Weekend Blog Hop, now following/stalking you all the great ways we get to.Have a BLESSED weekend!
