How Grandparents Can Help Grandchildren Celebrate Dr. Seuss
Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and I have some ideas for you on how to help your grandchildren celebrate Dr. Seuss. I’m guessing everyone reading this has heard of him but just in case you are from another country and don’t know who he is you can read about him here.
My grandmother loved to read and she shared that love by reading to all her grandchildren. One of our favorites was Green Eggs and Ham.
Years later my own children were read this book by their Kindergarten teacher as a way to celebrate Dr. Seuss and his birthday. They were served green eggs (food coloring). It made a big impression on them and they loved that they actually got to eat green eggs.
Grandparents and Dr. Seuss
I’m always looking for fun things to do with my grandchildren and so we are going to celebrate by having our own Dr. Seuss birthday party tomorrow. I’m not sure which activities I will do with them but here are some ideas I’m thinking about.
With some construction paper, ribbon and tape or glue we can make our own hats and make our own Dr. Seuss magic while I read them one of his books.
I have some strawberries and bananas so all I have to do is get the kabobs and we can make some kabobs that will be a healthy treat for them to eat while I read.
My grandkids love having their picture made, especially if they get to be silly! We can take their hats and their kabobs and do some funny pictures for their parents!
There are more fun activities on the Dr. Seuss site. March 2nd is his birthday but you can have the party anytime. Your grands won’t care as long as it involves a Dr. Seuss book and some fun, what difference does it make if it’s a day or two late!
Read to your grandchildren! It’s a wonderful way to connect generations.
