Celebrating Dr. Seuss’ Birthday


Dr. Suess quote

Did you know that this Friday (March 1st) is Dr. Seuss’ birthday? It’s probably one of those things that only Elementary school teachers or mothers find themselves knowing, but hey, it can make for a really fun day with your little ones! We love Dr. Seuss books around this house and Nora loves watching the Cat in the Hat on PBS, so I thought it would be fun this year to plan a few activities for us to do together on this special birthday. Here are some easy and fun ideas that you can do with your littles…

1. Green Eggs and Ham breakfast– I feel like this is the classic Dr. Seuss activity, but it really is so much fun! You can read the book Green Eggs and Ham and then make your own delectable spread and have a little picnic in your living room. You can check out Make it Cozee’s adorable version of this breakfast to gather some other decorating inspiration.

2. Make some Dr. Seuss inspired snacks for snack time. Are you noticing a food theme here? Well, my girlie can EAT, so I find myself thinking about food a lot 🙂 I found some adorable ideas on pinterest for Dr. Seuss inspired snacks. Check em’ out!

*My Delicious Ambiguity has tons of ideas but I loved these green egg and ham pretzel bites!


*Hello Little One has these adorable Oreo and Life Saver hats. Too cute! I also love her one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish cookies.

*Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons has some adorable hats made out of fruit roll ups and marshmallows!


3. Do some Dr. Seuss inspired crafts. There are tons of resources online for these crafts, or if you want to keep it simple, you can just print off some coloring and activity pages. Here are links to just a few options.

*Horton Heres a Who activity and coloring pages

*Seussville free printables

*Mom to 2 Posh Little Divas has a great round up of activities and crafts

*Stretching Your Budget has this adorable craft as well as some great educational ideas!


*Crafts and Things has a great Horton craft. How adorable is that?!


4. Research more about Dr. Seuss’ life. He was a very interesting man and this would be a great activity for an older child.


5. In need of a little break during the day? Turn on PBS. They will be having a Cat in the Hat marathon on Friday, and this really is a fun and entertaining show for the little ones! PBS online also has some fun games for the kids to play.


6. This may seem like the simplest suggestion, but read as many Dr. Seuss books as you can. Seriously, there are so many great ones to choose from and I love watching Nora delight in the rhyming and fun!

Whatever you choose to do, I hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating with your kiddos!
