6 Ways To Celebrate Dr Seuss Birthday and Reading with Your Kids

This Saturday is Dr Seuss’ birthday. Dr Seuss is an icon of love for reading and children. You can turn his birthday into a fun celebration with your kids and help them appreciate and love reading!

Ideas to celebrate Dr Seuss’ Birthday:

  1. Reenact your child’s favorite Dr Seuss book with a puppet show or play.
  2. Have story hour with Dr Seuss books. Have your child draw their favorite scene from the book.
  3. Make characters from a Dr Seuss book and put your child’s face on it. (Photo of Thing 2 below taken from a Kolcraft Mom’s daycare project).
  4. Read Oh The Places You’ll Go or The Foot Book. Get a giant piece of poster board, paint the bottom of your child’s feet with non-toxic finger paints and let him/her walk on the poster board.
  5. Check out your local library, bookstore or Target for Dr Seuss Birthday programs they are hosting.

  1. I have a unique way of celebrating Ted Geisel’s birthday… you see, he was born in Springfield, MA, and his grandparents lived on Mulberry Street… and many years later my Mom lived on Mulberry Street, so as a kid we were on the street a lot (not a lot there and at the time no markers as to the Seuss connection).

    So this week my oldest’s daycare had a Dr. Seuss week and I went in and read, “And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street” to her class, and told them the connection. Her teacher and her were impressed but her classmates, not so much. :)

    By the way, Mulberry Street and Bliss Street do NOT intersect in real life – Bliss Street is not far from Mulberry, but it’s off another street.

    Mike that is REALLY cool. We love how you shared a part of history with your child’s class. We love parents who are involved. We stand up with the Cat in the Hat & applaud you. :)
