Dr. Seuss title

Here are five Seussian ways to celebrate Dr Seuss Day this March 2nd.

Let's start the celebrations!

All of the quotes below are taken from Dr Suess's book Happy Birthday To You and have inspired these celebration ideas.

1. The Official Katroo Birthday Sounding Off Place

“So we''ll go to the top of the toppest blue space,
The Official Katroo Sounding Off Place!
Come On! Open your mouth and sound off at the sky!
Shout loud at the top of your voice “I AM I”

Go for a walk with family and friends to The Official Katroo Sounding Off Place or somewhere high with a great view. Pack a Smorgersboard picnic and Dr Seuss books to read on your picnic adventure.



2. Birthday Flower Jungle

“They'll take us down fast to the Birthday Flower Jungle
The best-sniffing flowers that anyone grows
We have grown to be sniffed by your own private nose”

The flowers in Seuss's birthday book smell like liquorice and cheese! What would your birthday flowers smell like? Grab colourful pencils and paper, draw pictures of your own Birthday flowers and label them with the foods they smell like.




3. Birthday Luncheons

“For Birthday luncheons as a rule
We serve hot dogs rolled on a spool”

Cook up a few hot dogs with family and friends and serve them with mustard (or your choice of sauce). You could even top it off with a swim in the “Mustard-Off Pools” or in a pool or lake nearest
to you.




4. Derring's Singing, Spelling Herrings!

“See what Derring's Herrings do They sing and spell it all for you”

Make a Derring's Herring's, Singing and Spelling Book. Fill a page with a list of ten words you want to learn how to spell and get an adult or friend to test you. When you spell out a word you could try and sing your answer. Extra points for being in tune!



5. You are YOU!

“Today you are you! That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”

Today of all days is the day to be completely YOU. You may want to read quietly in a snugly corner,
go on a Dr Seuss inspired adventure, dress up as a Seuss character or read a story aloud for
friends and family.
