The Ultimate List of Dr. Seuss Activities

Ultimate List of Dr. Seuss Activities!  So many fun ideas!


Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite children’s authors because his stories both captivate the attention of young children and teach important literary concepts such as rhyming and alliteration…all while telling a great story!

Another great element of Dr. Seuss’s books is their ability to be transformed once the book itself is closed!  All of the Dr. Seuss activities below are based on his beloved books and are hands-on and lots of fun!
