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.
- the Dr. Seuss book, One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish
- 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:
- 1 Fish 2 Two Fish Interactive (Free) Printable Placemat from obSEUSSED The Home Librarian - I love this one for snack time!
- ABC Scavenger Hunt from Kitchen Counter Chronicles
- Horten Hears a Who Activities from Blue Skies Ahead
I hope you and your kids are enjoying celebrating Dr. Seuss with us this month!
