6 Fun Ways to Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! Can you believe that 107 years ago, Theodore Geisel changed the world by teaching children to read, and enjoy it, when he introduced “The Cat in the Hat.” We want to honor his memory and thank him for entertaining and educating us and our children. He has stimulated our imaginations and engaged us with fun, humor and a whole lot of goofiness. To keep his memory alive, here are 6 ways to help celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with some family fun activities.

1. Read. Pick your favorites and spend some time in the wacky world he created. Our favorites are The Lorax, Green Eggs and Ham, Fox in Sox, and One Fish, Two Fish. Don’t have any of your own Dr. Seuss books? Go to the library or Costco has an inexpensive 4 pack of Dr. Seuss books to get your own Seuss library started.

2. Download an App. Are your kids too into technology to read a book made of …gasp, paper? Check out Oceanhouse Media’s interactive Dr. Seuss books. While I love books and encourage my kids to read all the time, Dr. Seuss stories just beg to be animated and enhanced which is why I love these interactive stories. I download a few to my Android phone and I’ve got entertainment for the kids anytime we are waiting in a restaurant or doctor’s office.

3. Go to Seussville, the site dedicated to all things Seuss, to play games

4. Cook up some Dr. Seuss inspired food.

Michelle over at the So Wonderful, So Marvelous blog threw an awesome Dr. Seuss birthday party and I loved her food ideas. Head on over to her site to see how she made the Pink Ink Yink Drink {pink lemonade}, ABCs of Seuss Cookies {frosted cookies with ABCs on them}, and Yertle’s Caramel Turtles {Rolo turtle candies}.

5. Conserve. I love the Lorax. He’s my absolute bestest favorite. Use the Lorax to help teach your kids about being environmentally friendly. See these Tips from the Lorax. Your kids can also get more involved with the Lorax Project. My daughter loved looking at the pictures of the endangered monkeys.
