Celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday

Saturday was Dr. Seuss' birthday, and we had a blast celebrating! It started with a reading of The Lorax followed by the movie version. We discussed how the book and movie were alike and different and which one we liked better. Then we made our own Truffula Tree forrest and made green ice cream instead of green eggs and ham (mainly because the mere thought of green eggs had Busy seeing, well, green). She's not an egg eater in the first place, so green eggs was a total turn off. We ended the day with a few more Dr. Seuss books and some wacky word rhyming. All in all it was a great way to spend the day filled with crazy fun!

How we made the Truffula Trees:

You need cotton balls, markers, glue, straws, food coloring and cups of water.
Busy dipped the cotton balls in water with food coloring then squeezed out the excess water. She glued the colored cotton balls and straws on the paper then colored the grass and sky. Once the cotton balls dried, the colors became much more vibrant!

There will be a post coming soon on how to make the green ice cream! It is delicious!
