Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! There will be much silliness to be had in our house today, some thematic, some just plain silly. Perhaps even a Seuss-y movie - or checking in for the PBS Dr. Seuss marathon and most certainly there will be lots of reading!
The other day I put together a craft project for a playdate that we had. I wanted to make something simple that they could sit and focus on and then go run and play. That's when I decided that we'd make The Cat in the Hat's hat. :) I went to work constructing a hat - just free styled it and then cut it. Once I was happy I used that and traced it. For this project I used card stock instead of construction paper. Cut out two strips of white paper for the stripes on the hat and then each unit got a sheet of fun Dr. Seuss stickers that they could put on their hats... or themselves. :)
The example went in the middle, instructions were explained, and glue sticks were handed out. Mae did not participate - although she really wanted to!
This project took no time at all to prepare and the kids had a great time with the simplicity of it and being able to use the glue sticks and stickers!
Happy Seuss-y fun! If you need more ideas - check out Seuss-y School.
