I’ve had this idea for quite some time that it would be fun to take some of my old posts and pull them together by theme. I often run across old posts I’ve forgotten about, and I know most of you probably haven’t seen them either!
Because the birthday of Dr. Seuss is coming up, I thought I would compile all of my activities and give you a sample day — a look at how I would schedule a Dr. Seuss Theme Morning at my own house!
Crafts, Activities, and Snacks for Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!!
8:30 AM: For breakfast, we begin with a Green Eggs and Ham recipe (you can also try our “natural” version of the green eggs)! I’ve done this several times with various classes, but never at home because of my daughter’s egg allergies. Now that she’s recently outgrown them, we made them this year!!
9 AM: Make a Dr. Seuss “Cat in the Hat” craft!
9:30 AM: Read-a-thon! Pull out all those old Dr. Seuss favorites and try some new ones, too!
10:15 AM: Time for a science experiment! Mix up some of this Oobleck recipe. If you’ve never tried it, you should!!
10:45 AM: Make and play Ten Apples Up On Top!
11:15 AM: Time for Lunch! Make “Cat in the Hat” Pizza.
12:30 PM: Make a tasty Dr. Seuss Cat-in-the-Hat Ice Cream Snack.
1:00 PM: Naptime for EVERYBODY!!
