Dr. Seuss Playdate (& Download!)

Yes, Dr. Seuss' birthday is today.

You can always tuck away these ideas for next year.  Or you can just keep celebrating all week long.  (That's what we'll be doing!)  Actually, we are celebrating Dr. Seuss tomorrow when  Little Man and his cousin will be having an entire Seuss play-date.

Unfortunately, I'm a very last-minute kind of gal.  My best ideas come late at night... I get these strokes of genius around 11 p.m. and just go for them full throttle!  I decided that I wanted Little Man and his cousin to dress up like Thing 1 and Thing 2 for their play-date tomorrow!

I found $2 red shirts at Wal-Mart... you can't beat that!  To create the shirts, I used the same printable iron-on fabric transfers that I used to make this Toy Story character pennant banner. Piece of cake!

Of course they wouldn't really be Thing 1 and Thing 2 without the blue fuzzy hair.  I had no time to order blue wigs, BUT I finally came up with a suitable substitute last night.  At US Toy, I found 50-cent blue derby hats along with matching feather boas.  (I never really imagined using a feather boa in a project for Little Man, but it worked out perfectly!)  I just wrapped the feather boa around the hat using some hot glue.  I absolutely can't wait to see how cute they look in their Seuss costumes!
We have all kinds of Seusstastic fun planned for tomorrow, highlighting different Dr. Seuss books.  Last night, I created a new hands-on activity.
After reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish we will graph a small cup of rainbow gold fish before eating them as a snack.

 

Nothing too fancy--I just want them to classify their goldfish by colors and see which color has the most or least.

You are welcome to download your own goldfish graphing sheet here.

I hope you're enjoying a happy day!

    Great Idea for the outfits! I was thinking about doing this for my boys for Halloween, but never thought about the blue feathers! Great idea!
