Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss’ birthday is March 2nd! Celebrate with these fun activities and more at Dr. Seussville

thing 1,2,3, display           thing 1,2,3                    Thing 1 and Thing 2                                               

 Thing 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…                                                     

It took a few years of doing this to perfect it and do it the most efficient way. I had been doing a three step process with each hand and was doing two hands for every child! Way too much. So I finally figured out that I could do this on a long strip of white and do one for each child. So it has evolved into a much simpler and more fun project. Now we can have fun! 

First we the thumb, index, and “tall man”, and pinky, red and leave ring finger unpainted. Don’t paint the center of the palm but paint around the perimeter. Print that on the paper, fingers pointing down. Next, directly above that print paint the fingers blue and print the hair.

Continue with this across your length of paper until every child has a turn. When they’re dry add the features with a sharpie. We wrote “Thing 1, Thing 2, Thing 3, Thing 4…up to 17! Too cute.

We add clown costumes to our dress up area. The kids love painted faces, animal crackers, and 3 and three ring (3 hula hoops) circus acts! We watch kid friendly circus videos like this one.


Pirate Ship   ship    Our Ship! We cut and taped together boxes from Home Depot to make a ship. The kids painted it black. We added a skull and crossbones flag and a steering wheel. We made telescopes to use when looking for land. “LAND HO,”

March Themess     Hats & Hooks! These hooks are just tinfoil scrunched up and bent into a hook shape. Then you stick the hook through a hole in the bottom of a paper cup.
