March 2nd is Dr. Seuss Day, which means schools across the country are celebrating throughout the month of March with various Dr. Seuss-themed events. This is exciting for kids young and old as they watch their school buildings being transformed into whimsical Dr. Seuss worlds while they play games and share snacks in celebration of this incredible children’s author.
If your school is planning on celebrating Dr. Seuss with a party or event, you may be wondering what you can do to add some fun to your celebration. Therefore, we have taken it upon ourselves to offer up a few suggestions for making your Seuss party a Seuss-cess.
Cat’s Hat Cake
Have a cake made in the shape of the Cat in the Hat’s hat and serve it up at the party. This super-cute sweet treat is sure to get lots of smiles and compliments and it makes the perfect addition to any Seuss table spread.
One Fish, Two Fish
Create a simple fishing game using a blue sheet and a fishing pole with a clothespin in place of the hook. Add cutouts to the One Fish, Two Fish characters to the front of the sheet for a Seussian twist. Have an adult sit behind the sheet to attach cute prizes to the clothespin anytime a kid comes along to cast a line.
Circus Train Rides
An ode to the book, If I Ran the Circus, party train rides are the perfect addition to any Seuss celebration. Add a few Dr. Seuss stuffed animals and be sure to read the book before the party to further the circus train theme.
