Before there were Harry Potter and JK Rowling to inspire our kids to love to read, there was Dr. Suess! His stories are so clever and fun, and his sense of rhyme is impeccable. The many memorable characters, fun limericks and illustrations in each book have made reading fun for many generations.
March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday and, to celebrate, we collected some of the very best Dr.Seuss crafts for kids. It would be a great idea to incorporate these craft projects into a Dr. Suess party or after kids read the book.
