With Dr. Seuss Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time for Fun and Easy Dr. Seuss Crafts, Printables and More! When my “babies” were little, they loved when I read aloud to them. Often, those read alouds involved Sneeches, green eggs and ham, and a mischievous Cat in a Hat. They loved Dr. Seuss books. If I’m honest, so did I.
Since any day is a great day for quirky rhyming fun, I wanted to share our love of these beloved books with 20+ Fun & Easy Dr. Seuss Crafts, Free Printables and More! If your kids love that silly Cat in the Hat, or the mustachioed Lorax, Dr. Seuss Day (or any day) is the perfect time to pull out the books and the craft supplies and get busy having fun (and maybe even make a Dr. Seuss costume or two!).
Everyone has a favorite Dr. Seuss book or character. There are so many to love, admire and relate to. There’s at least one Seuss character for everyone. And who doesn’t want to do a fun and easy Dr Seuss craft, activity or printable with their favorite character?
