Happy Birthday, Dr. Suess!
My moms club put on a great birthday party for Dr. Suess. I drew a picture of The Cat In The Hat on poster board, and kids had their picture taken in front of it. We drew outlines of our feet and read The Foot Book. We had a whole pile of Suess favorites that moms read aloud. We ended it with celebratory cupcakes. The boys kept wondering where Dr. Suess was, because who misses their own birthday party?! Well, I told them he passed away, that he was in heaven. We've had a few elderly neighbors pass away, so we've had a few discussions about that. We had a great time, and it was a wonderful opportunity to encourage kids to read.
