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

Do you remember when we shared our whimsical Dr. Seuss themed party? Learn how to throw your own Seuss-tastic bash HERE.

5 Fun Ways to Celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday

  1. Fun with Food: You can never go wrong with fun-themed snacks. Inner Child Fun offers these creative way to send your littles off to school, host a Dr. Seuss themed playdate or bring to the classroom for a whimsical surprise. With a bevy of easy to make snacks, even the kids can get in on the fun! 
  2. STEM: The teacher in me can't help looking for the learning opportunity. Little Bins for Little Hands shared this fun STEM challenge Cat-in-the Hat Stacking Cups tower. My kids love cup stacking and it gets everyone involved and is fun for all ages. 
  3. OOBLECK: Move over slime, Oobleck is back! Have you read Dr. Seuss' Bartholomew and the Oobleck? Is it a solid? Is it a liquid? You'll just have to make this easy, SAFE and kid-friendly concoction for yourself. The Artful Parent got creative and offers these 13 Things to Do with your homemade sensory goop
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
