Dr. Seuss Week
Most of the world celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd by enjoying his many books. He has so many classics, and each book has so many ways to make new connections with children. We will be taking the extra fun route here at Young Scholars and celebrating Dr. Seuss for the next two weeks! Here are some ways to incorporate the fun at home.
Dr. Seuss week is a great time to jump aboard the reading train! They are the funnest books to incorporate activities into. There’s sure to be one close to your heart from when you were a child. Pick your favorite to share with your children. It can be a memorable time for all.
Take one day to get the supplies and a few books from the library or pick up a few of your favorites from the store. Your best bet is party stores or craft stores for finding the perfect items to create DIY costumes and crafts.
Make this the year to add a new tradition to your family fun. Dr. Seuss week is celebrated in elementary schools as well, so start making costumes now for you and your kiddos to enjoy for the next decade!
For us here at school we are focusing on Fox and Sox, The Lorax, and Cat in the Hat for our spirit days.
Fox and Sox day will be so fun wearing silly socks and mismatched shoes. For the Lorax find fake mustaches or dress your girls up like Truffula Trees in tutus. For cat in the Hat day dress up as the cat in the hat, super easy and super fun! A black sweatshirt, red tie, and cat ears or his famous red and white stripped hat.
Two other fun books to do activities with are Green Eggs and Ham and Wacky Wednesday. For green eggs and ham make this to eat. Maybe for breakfast, then your child can go to school and share the experience with their friends. Wacky Wednesday can be letting your kiddos pick out their own outfits from head to toe. I remember dressing up for this one in about 3rd grade and looking absolutely ridiculous! I had on fake colored hair, mismatched clothing, socks up to my knees that didn’t match, a feather boa, and mismatched shoes. Let the wacky take the cake for one day.
Dr. Seuss is just the celebration week that everyone needs when no other holidays are here to break up the last of the cold winter. Bring in the bright colors and jump start your Springtime! Dr. Seuss left us books of inspiration and food for thought. Happy reading!
