How will you be celebrating tomorrow? For what, you ask? Tomorrow, March 2 is the birthday of the zany, talented and beloved author, Theodor SEUSS Geisel, known to everyone as Dr. Seuss. We have rounded up five of our favorite activities and crafts to celebrate Dr. Seuss -- the man that made reading fun for so many. He brought words to life (he penned over 60 books!) starting in 1937 with And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street.

- Be Green: My favorite Dr. Seuss book is The Lorax. I read it often to my own children and cannot get enough of the powerful message behind it. "UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not". (Dr. Seuss, The Lorax) I favor these adorable crafts I found from Sunny Day Family. What a great catalyst to kick off some of those heavy environmental topics.
- Go Fish: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish was the first book my son read out loud to his preschool class and I still can see his proud little face peering over the top of the book as he finished it. These hands-on activities (curated by Homeschool Preschool) are inspired by this Dr. Seuss must-read and mamas, we can never have too many homemade crafts, can we?
