We have been reading several of his books like One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and Green Eggs & Ham. we have also been learning some fun & interesting facts about him like his real name and that he liked to wear funny hats because they gave him funny ideas.
We've also learned that he wrote over 40 books and that not only was he an author, someone who writes books, but also an illustrator, someone who draws pictures for books.
This Friday we will be having a Dr. Seuss party and will be dressing up as our favorite Dr. Seuss character! We had so much fun last year. We hd some very creative costumes and our preschool class even tried green eggs! We will make them again this year & we plan to try a few new things that might look a little weird but taste really good!
I thought that is share some of our easy costume ideas with you in case you need a little inspiration!
Blue construction paper
Tape or staples
White paper plate or paper
Red t-shirt (if it has printing, wear inside out)
To make the hair, cut 2 wide strips of blue construction paper & attach the ends to make a band that fits the child's head. Cute several strips of blue construction paper to create the crazy hair. These can be the same width or different, either way works great! Curl each strip of paper with your finger. To do this, simply hold one end of the paper with one hand and with the other run two fingers along the strip slightly bending as you move up the strip using your thumb on the other side to guide!
Once you have the strips curled it is time to attach them to the band. I used double sided tape to attach but staples work as well just remember to position the flat side of the staple on the inside of the band so it doesn't scratch the child's head. I alternated the direction of the curls which made it a bit crazier but it is totally your preference!
Once you have the crazy hair made it is time to assemble the costume. Using the white paper plate & permanent marker write Thing 1 or Thing 2 on the paper (see picture for details) and attach to the belly of the red shirt. Put on the crazy hair hat & you are ready to go!
Bright neon colored tissue paper
Brightly colored clothes preferably on the neon family & striped pants add to the effect.
To make the top of the trees, simply gather several sheets of tissue paper (can mix colors or all same) and tie to a headband. Wear your brightest clothes and add headband.
Instead of using a headband, make a "hat" by using construction paper or card stock to make a band that fits the child (or adult) head. Tape or staple the tissue paper to the band (if stapling, make sure the flat part of the staples are on the inside to prevent scratching).
Black clothing (specifically T-shirt)
Large white paper bag
Red paint or construction paper
Red fabric (just a tiny bit)
To make the cat's hat, use a large white paper bag & paint or glue/tape wide strips of red around the bag leaving spaces for the white stripe!
Wear black clothing or black shirt & jeans. Tie a bit of red fabric around the neck in a bow tie. Add striped hat for finishing touch!
