Dr. Seuss Day Costumes

Dr. Seuss Day Costumes

Dr. Seuss Day, also known as Read Across America Day, is usually on March 2nd, which is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Many schools have students dress up as favorite literary characters. If you need Dr. Seuss dress up ideas for school this year, I’m sharing three Dr. Seuss character costumes and a Skippyjon Jones costume idea that we made for my children…

Valentine’s Tic Tac Treats
