Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Today we wrapped up our Dr. Seuss activities. We still have a few more books to read tomorrow, but since I work all weekend, we finished our activities today.
We read about eight Dr. Seuss books today...I don't think my tongue will ever be the same! Talk about tongue twisters!!
After we read "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish", we made our own fish bowls. Tessa ate her fish as fast as she could glue them on. That totally grossed Adam out!

After reading "Bartholomew and the Oobleck", we made some Oobleck of our own! What a hit!! They played with it for an hour.

They probably would have played longer, but when I turned my back to fold a kitchen floor was suddenly covered in Oobleck. Luckily it was only cornstarch and water. Adam was covered in Oobleck as well, so we cleaned up and took a lunch break.
After lunch we read about Horton. We made elephant ears and had some quiet time while we watched "Horton Hears A Who". They laughed and laughed through the whole thing!
Our two monkeys acting like elephants!
We have had a fun Dr. Seuss week! This will be something we look forward to every year!
