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.
