Celebrating Dr. Seuss

Did you remember to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2nd?  

We had so much fun at our house.  We're always looking for an excuse to have a party.

We started off the day by making some Thing 1 and Thing 2 hand prints.

 Of course we spent most of our afternoon reading, because . . . 

You're never to old,
To wacky, to wild,
To pick up a book,
And read to a child.

 My kids had a blast making their own wacky Seussville out of Lego's.

 And for dinner?  Green eggs and ham!  (And some baked oatmeal with vanilla yogurt.) To make my eggs green I threw them in the blender with some spinach and then scrambled them up in a frying pan.

My kids were thrilled with their green eggs and ham dinner and were completely oblivious to the spinach in the eggs.  They licked their plates clean!

After dinner we read a few more Dr. Seuss books before bed.

Today is gone.
Today was fun.
Tomorrow is another one.

Every day,  from here to there, funny things are everywhere!

How did you celebrate?


  1. Super cute! I love Dr. Seuss!!! :)

    I did a handprint craft with my son and my husbands handprints - "Daddy and Me Handprints". I would love for you to follow my blog and check it out!

    Looking forward to more posts,

  2. Spinach to make the eggs green. Genius!

  3. I love these handprints. What a clever idea with a perfect outcome. Love it.

  4. I love the green eggs idea! Spinach is so much better than green food coloring! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love those things!! And I LOVE that you ate Green Eggs!! Brilliant.

    Thanks for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!


  6. I, also, am impressed with the spinach idea...and the blender actually. We used blue food coloring and it was still a big hit. We did a bunch of other things all day long, including a list of all our Dr. Seuss books in a jar and let my 3 year old choose a title every once in a while throughout the day. I didn't do everything I'd thought of, but it was still a very exciting day. You can see some of them here:
