A well loved book at our house is One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. We love Dr. Suess. The book is warn and weathered and as I like to call it..."Loved". So, for our fun Summer Camp day we sat down to read and love this book one more time.
We started by reading the book together under our big front tree. My favorite thing about reading Dr. Seuss books are the questions you can ask along the way. They are filled with questions. Silly, weird, fun questions. It leaves room to ask what they would do. Or if they would even want to do the things the characters in the book are doing. I love the responses I get.
Then we got to work making these fun fish cupcakes that go along with the fish at the beginning of the book.
The fish cupcakes are simple to make. You choose your favorite cake mix and make it according to the boxed directions for cupcakes. Buy or make a white frosting, seperate into 2-4 bowls, and dye each bowl a different color. Then use M&M's and different colored orange slices candy to decorate them.
And, since in our house my boys are always asking for a "craft project" (I don't know where they get that from...) we had to come up with something fun to make together.
What is better then getting to design your own Dr. Suess Character Pillow from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Can you tell which pillow is which character? Here is how you can make your own:
