Dr. Seuss Birthday

National Read Across America Day

Add a little magic to your day & celebrate Dr. Seuss birthday with these fun & educational activities & crafts! Dr. Seuss, the beloved author of classics such as “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham,” has a special day dedicated to him each year on his birthday, March 2nd. This day, also known as National Read Across America Day, is a great opportunity to inspire a love of reading in children and celebrate the magic of Dr. Seuss’s books.

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday and reading week for kids, I’ve created a little printable activity pack you can grab below & I’ve pulled together a few additional activities and crafts to enjoy with your little ones.
