Cat in the Hat Hats
|Simple hats made from paper|
|I got this fun idea from Stuff by Ash|
|I've got 3 Munchkins, so I made a Thing 3.|
|Thing 1, Thing 2 & our very own Thing 3|
One Fish Stamping
|Make your stamp from a styrofoam take-home box|
|It will look something like this.|
|I traced over my indents with a pen just to make the indents more prominent.|
|Working quickly, paint the styrofoam. Where the paint puddled in the indents we used a toothpick to clean it out a bit.|
|Flip your stamp over & press on a piece of paper. None of ours came out perfect. But, the kids still enjoyed this. I'm sure we will be doing something similar soon.|
Left Foot. Right Foot. Prints
|This project idea from The Foot Book came from Meet the Dubiens|
I had my two youngest make this project. They loved it. They said it tickled when I painted their feet.
You can print this (minus my kids feet) here.

Make a StoryDr. Seuss wrote the story Green Eggs & Ham using only 50 words. Capt. N wrote a short story using our own set of 50 words similar to the idea from education.com. First, I had Capt. N find all 50 words in the Dr. Seuss story. Then we came up with a list of our own 50 words. Our words were: head, read, bread, dead, said, fed, led, bed, Ted, Jed, Ned, Fred, bird, flew, you, knew, blue, was, am, I, like, robin, in, win, tree, to, it, the, best, nest, a, they, play, way, would, could, can, see, free, me, be, he, them, that, bat, and, on, are, if & of. For a printable list of these words click here.
Next, we made a list of random sentences using only our list of 50 words. Here's some of our sentences:
- Robin is a bird.
- Can I be dead?
- They like the bread.
- The robin nest is the best.
- Fred said, "Can I play?"
- You knew the blue bird flew.
- The robin flew to the tree.
