I am so excited about the month of March because I'm a huge Dr. Seuss fan. I want to do all kinds of fun activies with my Preschoolers but I'm having trouble finding age-appropriate ideas.
Any suggestions?

"Cat in the Hat" Hats

I teach both a three year old and four year old class, and we have made these hats for a few years now. They are simple to do, and the kids like to wear them as we read the "Cat in the Hat."

Need: red and white construction paper strips, older children can cut their own, younger may need you to at least draw lines on the paper for them to follow,

Have children glue strips of paper, alternating, (what a great time to alk about patterns) to a 9 x 17 piece of white construction paper held the long way. Staple this to a head band made from construction paper. They now have hats!

Like I said, it's simple, but they love it.

Green Eggs & Ham

I always read Dr. Suess' "Green Eggs & Ham." Then we cook green eggs by adding food coloring & ham (tiny chunks). You can add blue to the eggs and talk about mixing blue & yellow to make green. I also use this as a liquid to solids activity. Then we have fun drawing a picture & dictating about us eating our "Green eggs & ham."

Thanks, You gave me just what I've been looking for. This is our first year to celebrate Dr. Seuss' big day, and wow! we are so excited. My preschoolers will be quite busy on tomorrow as we attempt to make our hats.
