12 Adorable Dr Seuss Inspired Crafts For Kids

I have been a HUGE fan of Dr Seuss books since before I can even remember. I loved reading the rhymes and looking at the imaginative pictures when I was a child. When my kids were born we started their own collection of the classic books and they have been a favorite of theirs as well. Add in the movies (Horton Hears a Who is one of my kids all-time favorites) and it’s easy to see why kids eat up the stories and the fun characters.

Today, March 2nd,  is Dr. Suess’s 108th birthday! What better way to celebrate a kid’s all-time favorite author then to spend time recreating some of the most well-loved characters with your kids?
