The High King Lives

Dr. Seuss Day 2015 March 10, 2015

In this post: Dr. Seuss crafts, eats, and a lapbook.


Hello dear ones! Here’s how we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday this year:

  • We read all the Dr. Seuss books we own. Here’s Nana reading Green Eggs and Ham.


  • A lapbook with Dr. Seuss’ biography, a Meet the Artist questionnaire, and a cartoon tutorial.





  • “My Favorite Dr. Seuss Book” birthday cake writing assignment~  I was inspired by this blog:   but I  found the cake printables elsewhere online. Michael colored three layers, put them together, and then added construction paper candles. I printed out the assignment with a nice font.


  • Cat in the Hat hat~ I got the idea from this blog:



  • Dr. Seuss decor~  I found the Dr. Seuss plates at Target last year. I found the quotes online. The truffela tree and Dr. Seuss sign are from our Dr. Seuss celebration 2 years ago:





  • A movie~ Horton Hears a Who.




  • Green scrambled eggs and ham with grits~ for supper.


God bless & remember the High King lives!~Amber Dover

My Family Rocks! Sunday: Dr. Seuss’ Birthday March 10, 2013

Hello friends! Last weekend, the family and I had a Dr. Seuss celebration. I found a lot of neat ideas on Pinterest. Enjoy the pics and maybe you can use these ideas in your own celebration :).

The day’s events included reading several Dr. Seuss books, watching two Dr. Seuss movies, playing Dr. Suess games on  , eating a Dr. Seuss lunch, and playing Pin the Heart on the Grinch and of course lots of pictures!

I had worked on the decorations on and off for about two weeks.  So the night before I set up.

Here’s the Seussville sign. I made everything except the hat. I bought that at Michael’s craft store.

Red and white streamers plus a white table cloth and red plates….simple.

Then I also got this Dr. Seuss poster at Michael’s.  I don’t remember when we got the Cat in the Hat’s hat.

I printed out several Dr. Seuss quotes and framed them with construction paper and put them up around the house. Below are the truffula trees and sky for our “Horton Hears a Who” back drop.

I loved our back drop for “Horton Hears a Who”. I decided to keep it in the closet. The sky paper came from Michael’s craft store. The truffula trees are pool noodles, black crepe paper, and feather boas. The Horton ears can be found on the Seussville website and the speck and flower are pom poms and a pipe cleaner.
