Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Celebrating with The Cat in the Hat

In honor of today being Dr. Seuss' birthday we celebrated by reading one of our fave Dr. Seuss books - The Cat in the Hat! No celebration is complete without treats & fun so of course we had some of those too!

Here's what we did today:

2 Books & A Short Movie:

Craft: The Cat's Hat


I used a great Cat in the Hat template from A to Z Teacher Stuff as my guide for our hats. I just made ours a little bit bigger/wider when I traced the template onto cardstock (so it was stiff).

Step 1: The girls painted the red stripes

Step 2: While we let the hat dry I fitted the headband piece (I used sentence strip paper) on each Lil Diva

Step 3: Once dry I stapled the hat onto the headband & the girls were able to wear their "Cat" hats!

Learning Fun: Rhyming Fun with _at Words

I used this great Hat _at Words template from A to Z Teacher Stuff for this activity!

First, We used our letter tiles to make words. Then the Lil Divas picked their 5 faves and wrote them onto the hat (see above picture)

This lil diva loves to accessorize!
Check out her bling! :)

Snack: Edible"Cat" Hat

We used:
Nilla Wafers
Marshmallows (I had big ones at home so I cut them in half)
Red Gummy Life Savers
Vanilla Frosting (just a dab to help hold it together)

How did you celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday? We LOVE new ideas!

  7. Its amazing information. but This information write?
    Maine Coons from New Hampshire , like those from other regions, are a unique and majestic breed of domestic cat. Known for their size, intelligence, and friendly nature, Maine Coons are one of the most popular cat breeds in the United States. Breeders in New Hampshire, as in other states, focus on the health, temperament, and quality of these cats.
