It is the kids holidays week so we had friends over for a play date.
After playing for some time, the kids began to show signs of restlessness. Since Dr. Seuss’ birthday is approaching (he was born on 2 Mar 1904), I took out a stack of his books for the kids to read and then asked them to pick their favorite to use as an inspiration for their Dr. Seuss art & craft projects.
The book that the boy picked was “The Cat in the Hat”.
His artwork is of Thing 1 & Thing 2 flying kites. He particularly loved the “Thing 1” & “Thing 2” characters in the book. According to him, they had the “funniest hair”! LOL.
Don’t you just love how he drew their hair? They look so crazily cute!!
For D, he picked the book “Ten Apples Up on Top”.
He wanted to make a picture of a dog carrying 2 apples on its top. So, I helped him to trace his foot and finger prints and drew the apple shapes on the construction papers. Then he cut them out and assembled them by himself.
(Dog’s face was created using D’s foot print, Dog’s ears were created using D’s finger prints.)
Look at his dog! It even had teeth!! So cute, isn’t it?
The girls chose the title “The Tooth Book”.
Both wanted to do so something about tooth, but they needed some ideas. So, I showed them my favorite “Tooth” site – “My Milk Toof” for some inspirations.
These are what they came out with – their own “Milk Toof” illustrations!
The girl’s illustration is about the “toofs” going to a carnival. Can you spot a popcorn vendor station and a Ferris wheel in the picture? 😉
E’s illustration also about the “toofs” going to a park. On the last segment, she even made the blue balloon popped! HAHA!!
I love that both girls made their “toofs” wear the Dr. Seuss’ signature “White & Red” hats so that their illustrations are in line with the “Dr. Seuss” theme.
