Super Seusstastic Crafts and Yummies!

I am constantly trying to find ways to incorporate Dr. Seuss into third grade.  We tend to use books like The Lorax , The Butter Battle Book, The Sneetches, and Yertle the Turtle, because of the allegorical nature of the books.  I love all things Seuss, but I am insanely jealous of all of the primary teachers out there!  Anyway, I found the CUTEST pipe cleaner crafts on Craft Jr.  Although I will not be able to use them with my own kiddos, I thought that SOMEONE might be able to use them! You can find the directions for these absolutely darling finger puppets HERE

I love the following Lorax craft because of it's simplicity, but also because it is so stinkin' cute!   You can find directions to this craft HERE

Check out the Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes.  Hello Red Velvet!  I love the idea of using cotton candy for their crazy hair!  LOVE IT!  You can find the recipe HERE!

Here's a cute little pencil topper craft featuring Thing 1 and Thing 2.  You can find it HERE!

Okay, and while we're on this topic, here's another option for Thing 1 and Thing 2.  Click HERE!
Here are some YUMMY Green Eggs & Ham Cookies.  I saw that Brooke from Primary Perspective had something posted about these little cuties, but just in case you didn't catch it, you can find more information HERE.

There are tons of cute ideas HERE for a Seuss-themed party!  You'll definitely want to check them out!

Lastly, if you're looking for Dr. Seuss ideas to round out your plans, Erica Bohrer has a comprehensive list of blogs to visit for inspiration.  You can find them HERE!
