Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
I wanted to share this party with you all as we draw closer to celebrating Theodor Seuss Geisl. Hopefully this gives you some ideas as you celebrate in small or big ways.
Every year we get excited about throwing a Back to School party for my sons class. We love it because it’s a great way to get to know my sons classmates, their families and the teachers, outside of the school setting! Enjoy!
Check back later for more fun or follow along so you don’t miss all of our great post on crafting, cooking, kid activities and home decor….
Jello with Gummy fish
Marshmallows sticks dipped in white chocolate and colored sprinkles. Covered styrofoam in blue paper and quote!
Dessert table – I filled up a glass vase with chips and put a quote inside it. Once again simple.
Dr. Suess Hat cake – 5 layers of chocolate cake covered with buttercream frosting! I must admit I really think fondant would’ve been much easier than using this buttercream frosting.
Made paper fans circles with polka dot paper and turqoise tissue paper. I also used red paper lanterns
Photo Shoot! Thing 1 and Thing 2 was a wonderful idea and I had the help from my kids to paint it!
Dr. Seuss Duck, Duck Goose – We played One fish, 2 fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish (a version of duck duck goose).
Thing 1 and Thing 2 Freeze tag – I made hair from tissue paper and headbands.
Cat in the Hat Ball Game – I used a small trash can and made it look like Dr. Suess’ hat and then they took turns trying to throw the balls in.
Tah dah! I didn’t get a close up picture of the red buttercream frosting cupcakes but they were really cute. We were going for the blue icing look (picture via www.goodlifeeats.com) but my friend ran out of blue food coloring (the kids didn’t care).
My boys helping me paint Thing 1 and Thing 2 Photo prop. I just drew it on butcher paper, painted it and then cut out the face.
