Dr. Seuss Week!

We have a Dr. Seuss Week at my preschool and one of the crafts we love doing in my 2's room is handprint elephants from the movie Horton Hears A Who. After the student get there handprint on the paper, I draw in the flower and write the quote that is at the end of the movie. "A person's a person, no matter how small!" This makes a cute little craft to take home and also reminds the students that even though they are little, they are still people and should be treated as such. This is only my second year teaching, so I am hoping my kids this year love this craft as much as my kids last year did!

To go along with the handprint elephants, we play our own version of "pin the tail on the donkey." Instead, we play "pin the flower on Horton." The goal is the same, whoever can place their "flower" closest to Horton's trunk, wins! Set up is simple. I make the flowers using pipe cleaners and pom-poms. The flower in the movie is pink, but I make mine different colors so I know which kid placed the flower where.

Combined, this craft and game makes a great day to help celebrate Dr. Seuss Week. The kids have a great time getting their hands dirty with paint and playing a fun game with their eyes closed. I hope this gives some of you some ideas for when Dr. Seuss' birthday rolls around!
