I ♥ Dr Seuss!
I can remember reading about ‘noodle-eating poodles’ and a ‘fox in socks’ when I was little. Back then I loved all the tongue twisters and crazy words, now I love the imagination and smiles Dr Seuss brings to my son. Jadon has loved Dr Seuss books since before he could talk. He would bring me “Hop on Pop” to read over and over and over…and I would read it to him every time because I wanted him to love books as much as I do.
Dr Seuss has a permanent place in our hearts, with his wonderful quotes and fun tongue twisters. Jadon reads the books to himself now (*sniff–he’s so big!!) and I love hearing him laugh at the fun things in them. And speaking of fun… today while I was browsing online, I found an awesome post about Dr Seuss activities!!! Here are a few of my favorite ones:
Make your own Oobleck!! This is one of my son’s favorites! Last year for Halloween, he was a mad scientist and he carried around a beaker filled with glowing green oobleck! Here’s the recipe and instructions: http://preschoolpowolpackets.blogspot.com/2012/02/ooblek-recipe-dr-suess-birthday.html
And here is a fun rhyming game with ‘There’s a Wocket in my Pocket’: http://thisreadingmama.com/theres-a-wocket-in-my-pocket-rhyming-scavenger-hunt/
Make some crazy play dough animals that you would catch if ‘you ran the zoo’!
There are so many more ideas all over the Web!! Here is the post that started my search:
