Celebrate Seuss Week

Yesterday was Dr. Seuss' birthday so today kicks off Dr. Seuss week!  Elementary schools all over the nation celebrate the works of this great author, but there's so much you can do at home.  Not crafty?  No worries; there's lots you can do without making a signature red and white stripped hat (although that can be fun for the younger kids).  If you are crafty, keep reading and I'll link you to some more great activities that will help you celebrate!
Here's how we are celebrating...
