Dr. Seuss's Birthday! Thing 1 and Thing 2 Activities

Are you ever too old to enjoy a good book from Dr. Seuss?  No matter what your age is, you can always take away something from one of his books.  A favorite of mine is Oh, the Places You’ll Go!  We made these adorable books and hot air balloons to go with it. You can grab it here and do it with your class!
 We used strips of tissue paper with a glue/water mix, but you can paint them or just use markers to color them in.

If you know me, I'm obsessed with creating fun/creative writing paper. This design comes from  my March Writing paper collection but you can download it for FREE here. 

Below is the writing paper and a simple project for the book, The Cat in the Hat.  Enjoy!  Our final projects are posted below.  We added Thing 1 or 2 (although they look exactly the same!) to the top of the paper.  You can get the tracers and everything you need from the download above. 

 I made the hair tracer on a manila folder for durability.

Our second graders made these...
and we helped our kindergarten buddies make these:
Here's a simple craft. First, cut out a small red rectangle. Have students trim the sides off the top two corners to create a shoulder effect. Cut a small square of blue tissue paper and make small cuts at the top and glue it on.  Make a circle tracer and add the words. Draw a face/add googly eyes and you're done!

Finish your day off with a fun treat!
