In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2, we’ve highlighted some insider tips to help you and your kiddos get in the Dr. Seuss spirit.
- Green Eggs and Ham: Start the day with a Dr. Seuss inspired green eggs and ham breakfast. Forget the green food coloring in scrambled eggs – try this yummy and healthy from the Food Network.
- Books & Movies: Read some of the classic Dr. Seuss books with your kids, as that is what Dr. Seuss was all about. For another relaxing way to get your Dr. Seuss fill, watch a Dr. Seuss movie like The Lorax or Horton Hears a Who.
- Crafts: Get the creative juices flowing and make Dr. Seuss-themed crafts. We liked these Cat in the Hat masks that are fun and easy to make. Simply cut a hole in the center of a paper plate and color the rest of the paper plate with black markers. Then, cut a bow out of red construction paper, whiskers and cat ears from black construction paper and cut out the shape of the hat from white construction paper, coloring in the red stripes. Tape or glue all the pieces to the plate and add a Popsicle stick to the inside of the plate at the very bottom and you’ve got a Cat in the Hat mask perfect for celebrating Dr. Seuss.
