My rhyming ends there.
We love books and reading in this house. Dr. Seuss is a personal favorite of mine and his birthday gave us another excuse for some fun. Since Annabelle is not yet in school and our library (amazing as it is) had no plans for the day I took matters into my own hands. Armed with books, movies, seussville.com, activities, and food we celebrated all week.
There are a lot of pictures of our food below, since it was all different (Annabelle has never cleared her plate so easily), but each day we also played on the computer, did an activity on paper (color, wordsearch, craft) as well as watched a movie or two.
Ready for fun
Chicken patty in pita with cheese hair
Schlopp witha cherry on top
(vanilla pudding with cherry)
(mini pancakes and strawberries)
Fish with star sandwich and rainbow goldfish & pink ink drink
Canned hash with egg and toast
From the Cat in the Hat Comes Back we had cake in the tub, Annabelle quickly learned that unlike the cake in the book hers would not float (we had another piece after bath was over).
Getting her toast ready for the Butter Battle, discovered many new Dr. Seuss books myself during our week.
Tossing their toast to see if they are Yooks or Zooks
Do You Know How Lucky You Are? Another one that was new to me. Great lesson for Annabelle and a good reminder to me.
Lucky Annabelle and a list of what she is thankful for
Horton Hears a Who and Horton Hatches an Egg are two of my favorites. So we spent a day with Horton and the Whos, reading also How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Making their ears
Roast Beast sandwich and Who-Pudding
Little Hortons with their Clovers
(sucker covered in cotton candy)
Of course we couldn't celebrate Dr. Seuss without reading and eating Green Eggs and Ham. So on our last day, his actual birthday, we did just that.
Annabelle had Sam's clothes laid out for when he came home from work
Green Eggs and Ham shirt
To finish it off we made a cake for Dr. Seuss and read Happy Birthday to You!
