Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Happy 108th Birthday Dr. Seuss!
In honor of perhaps the greatest children's author and illustrator, today we read all our favorite Seuss classics. I started to list them all but then it took us like 4 hours to read them all and would take several paragraphs to list. We really like our Seuss.

After reading we flipped through the books looking for some cool pictures, you see, our playroom is pretty much a gigantic mural of Dr. Seuss. We had a wall with a space. Now We don't.


And what is a birthday party without sweets and hats? Chocolate Chip cookies with red and pink swirly chips in a whimsical Seuss manner, and cat ear head bands.
The head bands were truly easy. All you need is black construction paper, pink crayons, glue and scissors.

While we worked we had rhyme battles! The person who could come up with the most rhyming words, real or made up, won. And the Grand Prize? The first cookie, fresh from the oven. Yum!

To make two hats cut one standard sheet of construction paper into 4 strips. Next Cut triangles from another sheet. Color pink triangles onto the black triangles. Glue two strips together long ways to make a circle. Be sure to size it right so it will fit your young'un. Allow it to set for a few minutes before gluing on the triangles. And Tada! Kitty ears!!

And don't forget everyone must have Green Eggs and Ham for dinner tonight!
