Fun with the Kids Friday: Dr. Seuss' Birthday


Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss. The author of children's imagination and inspiration.

For Fun with the Kids Friday I wanted to share this celebration we had in honor of Dr. Seuss.


We had so much fun.

I had fun.

My boys weren't expecting a party and their excited surprise was fun to see.


As most households, we have a loved stack of Dr. Seuss books.


All our party fun was centered around then.


 The colors. The food. The green eggs.




Along with the green eggs we had ham, of course, and we had One fish, Two fish GOLDFISH. 
 

Everyone enjoyed. We were even happy to have Little's bestest friend join us for our SEUSStastical celebration.


Once the little snack was over, it was time for arts and crafts!

Time to make some SEUSS inspired tees.


Fabric Sharpies, white t-shirts, and loads of imagination was all we needed to start the fun.


They each grabbed something Seuss to inspire them.

It took a lot of concentration.




I was pretty impressed with Oldest's shirt. He is excited to wear it on Monday when his class celebrates Dr. Seuss' birthday.


We recently got the movie "The Lorax". We have watched it a lot, my boys are often referring to themselves as "keepers of the trees."

I wasn't surprised that was what Middle chose to draw on his shirt.


Little went crazy drawing anything he wanted.

Then he decided I needed to draw the mad fish from One Fish, Two Fish.
 

The boys enjoyed making the t-shirts, and they really, really loved the green eggs.


Dr. Seuss contributed so much to reading and children's literature. I remember Green Eggs and Ham being one of the first books I read. It was the first book that Middle read too.

In fact, one of my favorite sayings from Dr. Seuss' literature is, "Oh the THINKS you can think up if only you try".

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Thanks for giving us an excuse to have a celebration.
