I love Dr. Seuss week. We use to celebrate Dr. Seuss week the first week of March to celebrate with his birthday. We have really enjoyed Dr. Seuss week close to St. Patrick’s Day lately. We read “Green Eggs and Ham” every St. Patty’s Day and make the boys green eggs and ham. Check out my St. Patrick’s Day post >>HERE<<.
So I wanted to focus on the story my kids love, The Cat in the Hat. I came up with some ideas for you to do with your children.
Use an old oatmeal container and added the red and white construction paper. I had some red and white pompoms and had them take turns trying to toss the pompom in the hat.
Here I got some red solo cups and index cards, got the inspiration from “Minute it to win it”. stack them using a pattern. They love doing this:)
Using simple pompoms can be fun for celebrating “The Cat and the Hat”. Perfect for sorting, measuring, and patterns. Great for math or fine motor skills.
Another great fine motor skill is playdough. We love playdough and use it almost every day.
Another easy activity with the pompoms is letting your child push them through a hole. I used this when they were a little younger but they still enjoy doing this and I have them put it through biggest to smallest.
After they do their activities I have them do a project. I cut out the shapes for my youngest and had my oldest cut out his own. They glued it how they wanted and added a face. When they were babies I painted their foot to look like the Cat in the Hat.
We have the book and movie of course. My mom had found the boys the game which is a lot of fun. I like how it’s more of a group wins and not an individual. If you liked please share. Love ya, Mary xoxo
