Last week we started the Dr. Seuss March series in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday that was March 2nd.  I hope you had a fun time with Ten Apples Up On Top!  This week we had  a fun time making handprint fish in honor of the book, One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.  I love making handprint anything with my girls.  Catch me after the jump for details and other links to fun Dr. Seuss ideas.

Handprint Fish


  • the Dr. Seuss book, One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish
  • paper
  • red and blue washable paint
  • paint brush
  • sharpie markers
  • goggly eyes


The easiest way that I have found to do handprints without making a big mess and wasting a lot of paint is to paint your child’s hand or let them paint their own hand.

Then show your child how to position his/her hand and help lay it carefully on the paper.


Super simple and fun!  After the fish dries we added a goggly eye and mouth with the sharpie marker.

Here are some other fun Dr. Seuss book ideas:

I hope you and your kids are enjoying celebrating Dr. Seuss with us this month!
