Kristi: What? No, Lucy, it's not in the trash. We returned it to the library.

Beyond Tuesday, we spent many days last week anticipating Dr. Seuss's Birthday with various lead in activities, especially Cory and me. Cory did a lot of activities to correlate with a whole host of Dr. Seuss books. We put most of his work into a lapbook, which was a lot of fun for him. Late last week, all of us spent an afternoon playing with Oobleck. This was a fun, ooey-gooey afternoon, with a little science snuck in there for good measure. (Bartholomew and the Oobleck)
We also organized an impromptu creature creating party with our neighbors. (There's a Wocket in My Pocket) One of the other moms offered her house as a gathering spot, and we all brought a few craft supplies and recycled treasures for the kids to use as materials to make a Seuss-inspired character. Mary and her bud Elisabeth show off theirs.
Mary made two. The one on the left is Van Voogle, a weather predicter, and the one on the right is the Rabble Babble Boy, a duck-talking critter. She made up quite an interesting tale about Van Voogle--if I can persuade her to edit and revise it, I might have to post it in a later blog.
Lucy and I made one, too.
