Dr. Seuss’s birthday is March 2nd! Here are several Dr. Seuss crafts and activities your kids can do to go along with the books.
Hey y’all, Tiffany here with some Dr. Seuss themed crafts and activities that go along with his books.
I’m planning on teaching a co-op class for our homeschool group next quarter, probably for the kids in the K-1 class. I like to teach classes that have some crafts and activities, but I also want them to be somewhat educational.
Crafts based on children’s books (like these Toilet Paper Roll Crafts Based on Children’s Books) are perfect for co-op classes, or even a public school classroom. Or you can just do them at home with your kids for fun! Dr. Seuss book are a bit wacky and silly, which makes them perfect for kids to do crafts and activities!
I went out and found some of my favorite activities and crafts for Dr. Seuss and put them together in this blog post for you. I probably won’t do all of them, but I will do some of them!
