Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!  
 Dr. Seuss
Celebrate the 106th anniversary of Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2nd! Print a fun coloring page, play in the virtual land of "Seussville," or try one of the recipes or craft below:

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish Prepare red and blue Jello according to package directions and pour each flavor into a shallow pan. Allow to set. Once set, use a fish shaped cookie cutter to cut the Jello into fish shapes or use a knife to cut the shapes out freehand if you don't have a fish shaped cutter.

Green Eggs & Ham
Super easy and fun to make-- beat egg(s) in a small bowl with a couple of drops of green food coloring. Scramble and serve with ham slices (add a green hue to the ham by brushing it with food coloring).

The Cat in the Hat's HatCat in the Hat's Hat
You'll need...
Empty, clean oatmeal canister
Red and white paper
Measuring tape
1-hole punch

To make...

Cut out 4" thick red and white strips from your paper; use the measuring tape to measure the circumference of the oatmeal canister to see how long to make the strips. Glue each strip in a red and white pattern, with red being the bottom color (closest to the open of the canister).

On the open end of the canister, use the 1-hole punch to make holes through either side about an inch up from the opening. Tie a few feet of ribbon to each hole.

Create a rim for the hat by cutting out a circle from white paper. Make sure the circle is larger than the opening of the hat and then cut out its center (like a donut) so that it will fit on the canister like a hat's rim. Glue the white rim into the open end of canister. Let dry.

After the hat is dry, try on, tying ribbon under chin. Trim any excess ribbon.
