Celebrating Dr. Suess

Celebrating Dr. Suess Activities 

Yesterday was Dr. Suess's birthday. It was the 105th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Seuss. He created such wonderful characters through his stories and was a great promoter of reading that I knew we needed to spend a day of fun celebrating his birthday.I had planned on doing a Day of Dr. Suess in March, but for some reason I spaced the fact that his birthday was at the beginning of March, rather than the end. Lucky for me we have an awesome local library who are always displaying books for whatever holiday, or special event that is coming up. When I went in on Monday I saw they had all the Dr. Suess books out on their big desk for children to choose from. This was a reminder to me of Dr. Suess upcoming birthday. Miss Priss and I picked out some books and began to plan our preschool Dr. Suess day for March 2. Here is what we did.

We read a bunch of Dr. Suess books. 
 The Shape of Me and Other Stuff (Bright & Early Books(R))
The Tooth Book (Bright and Early Books for Beginning Beginners)
The Cat in the Hat

The Foot Book: Dr. Seuss's Wacky Book of Opposites
Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook
I found this Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook at the library on Monday, but after browsing all of the reciepe's I found I was missing at least on ingredient from each one. I was not able to use this book this year, but plan to next year. Maybe you will have better luck with it. It definitely had some fun kid friendly reciepes in it:>

We then made some funfetti cupcakes. The batter was super yummy and we couldn't wait for the cupcakes to get done baking :>

We also did some Dr. Suess worksheets based on The Foot Book: Dr. Seuss's Wacky Book of Opposites and made door knob hangers that we found  here.
To finish out our preschool day I took white card-stock and wrote "Feet, Feet, Feet" on top and then we did footprints on the paper. I painted the kids feet with crayola craft paint and then had them step on the card-stock. The pictures turned out so cute and now we have a little memory page of what size their little feet were at this age. But of course they just liked the fact that they got to put paint on their feet:> Anyways we had a real fun preschool day celebrating Dr. Suess and his many accomplishments through children's literature. Hope all of you are taking some time to have fun with your littles. Have a wonderful day!
