Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss (March 2nd)

1 Mar

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s (well Theodor Geisel) 107th birthday!  It is one of my favorite days as a teacher because there are so many fun things to do with kids!  A couple websites that I love are:  http://www.seussville.com/ and http://www.obseussed.com/

Of course I compiled a few things that might be fun to do at home…

1.  Make Green Eggs and Ham for breakfast…  You may want to enlist the help of your little one so that he/she sees that the “green” of the eggs was made by you!  

2.  Make Cat in The Hat Snacks…  Take a nilla waffer or ritz cracker and set it on a plate….  Have your child cover it with white frosting.  Then place a red gummy lifesaver on the frosting and add more frosting…  Repeat this process with 4 lifesaver/frosting layers (picture to come after we make them)…

3.  OOBLECK…. Have you read the book Bartholomew and the Oobleck?  It really is a cute story and when you are done you can make your own oobleck…  To make Oobleck you take 1.5 cups of cornstarch and one cup of water…  Add a few drops of green food coloring and VIOLA you have OOBLECK!  It’s not a solid, not a liquid, just ooooey gooooooey fun!  If you don’t want to make that much of it, just put some cornstarch in a bowl and add water until it’s the consistency you desire (so you can make a ball out of it, but it quickly melts into a liquid after being molded)…

4.  Thing One and Thing Two cupcakes… I found these adorable cupcakes on http://www.goodlifeeats.com/ along with some other fun Dr. Seuss treat ideas!  I am going to make these for my family tonight!
