Having a "Seussical" Time

What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday this week then to have a fun filled seussical time.  Here are some great activities you can use for classroom group, treatment sessions or at home!


"Seussical' Fine Motor

"Cat In The Hat" Crafts

- All you need is construction paper, black and white, crayons or markers. 

- Cut a large circle (you can also use a paper plate) and then cut a large rectangular hat. 

- Have your children rip or snip strips of black paper into small squares.  Glue these squares around the outside of the circle. Or just color

- Color the hat in red and white stripes.  Then glue together!!

You can also use red and white constuction paper instead of coloring the hat with crayons.

"Cat In The Hat" Food Fun

You can make the famous hat from Cat In The Hat so many different ways, here are a few. 

Hat Parfaits: You will need a clear plastic cup, red Jell-o and Cool Whip.  All you have to do is layer the already made Jell-o and Cool Whip to make strips. 

Hat Fruit Sticks: You will need strawberries and bananas and a skewer stick.  Slice and layer in strips.  You can stick the end into a grape or larger piece of banana to make a face. 

Pancake Hats: You will need small pancakes, strawberries, and Cool Whip.  Layer a cooked pancake, then strawberry slices, then Cool Whip and repeat until your hat is as high as you want. 

Yummy Parfaits

"Seussical" Gross Motor Fun

"Cat In The Hat" Ball Toss:  You will need a large Oatmeal container and a paper plate.  Cut the middle out of the plate and glue the rim to the top of your container.  Around the outside of the container, glue strips of red and white paper to make it look like the hat from Cat In The Hat.  You now have a Cat In The Hat ball toss- use small squish balls, ping pong balls, or plastic golf balls to toss into the bucket.  And it to any obstacle course or just play the game! Who can score the most points?

Hop on Pop Fun:  Another Dr. Seuss favorite is Hop On Pop.  You can read it to you children then get up and Hop On stuff!! Cut out squares and write letters or numbers on them.  Call out a letter and that is where your child needs to hop!
