March 2nd marks Dr Seuss’ birthday and this year I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate! Keegan is so obsessed with his books and so am I. They are so fun to read, and if I decide to have a themed party for Keegan’s birthday this year it will be Dr. Seuss-themed… exciting, quirky, colorful and fun!
There are endless possible crafts and activities you can do relating to Seuss books and I just came up with something that I’m sure has been done before, but it really makes reading the books all the more fun! Drumroll..... Cat In The Hat, hats! Lol! Keegan loved his and didn't want to take it off the whole time we were reading and even during lunch.
I went to the dollar store and bought the smaller poster boards that you can get like 3 for a dollar.. I think they are 14x22 in.. I bought two of them.. The first poster board I cut in half lengthwise, and wrapped a piece around each of our heads to measure then marked that spot. I then laid them down flat and we colored the red stripes for one hat and glued red construction paper stripes on the other. You can use this activity to practice cutting, which Keegan wants nothing to with, lol and gluing. After the glue was dry, I wrapped them around to where the measurements were marked and I stapled the hat together.
With the next piece of poster board I traced the outside of the hats and them made another circle and inch away from the traced one and cut it out into an "O".
To make it simple I taped the two pieces together and we got this!!
Love it!! We will be doing some more celebrating on Monday. What fun Seuss activities will you be doing? :)
