Dr. Seuss Activities and Crafts
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 crafts and Dr. Seuss activities below are based on his beloved books and are hands-on and lots of fun.
