"There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

Yesterday, in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday, the kids and I celebrated with a couple of cute activities. I found a great idea on Pinterest for making Cat in the Hat hat cookies but I used red cookie icing instead of the red candy melts for the stripes. I then searched around for some Lorax themed crafts. I found this tutorial for making a Lorax mask and changed it up a bit based on the materials I had on hand. After making the cookies and the masks, I read the kids The Lorax and they goofed around with their masks.

For the masks, I used some foam pumpkins I had on hand. Drew eyes to cut out on the orange pumpkins and used the yellow to make the moustache

I cut ovals out of brown felt for the nose and glued a Popsicle stick to the back

"I am the Lorax"

"I speak for the trees"

“Look at me!

Look at me!

Look at me NOW!

It is fun to have fun

But you have to know how.”

  2. Meghan,
    In honor of Dr. Suess's birthday, would you be interested in guest posting this post on our Shaffer Sisters blog? We would put a pin-it button on it, and post it next Friday. Are you interested? Let me know. I scanned through your blog, and really love every single post! I was telling my sisters that we should figure out how to feature you, and I think this one would be awesome.
    with love
