Isaac came home Monday night and announced they were celebrating Dr Seuss birthday and Dr Seuss books and would I make him into Thing 1 for Wednesday. Most of you know I’m not a crafter so what’s a girl to do? Well check my fave place Pinterest and find a costume. Besides the Thing 1 costume though how can we celebrate Dr Seuss birthday? Here’s 5 ways to celebrate Dr Seuss!
1) Thing 1 and Thing 2 Cupcakes
I LOVE making cupcakes but don’t expect anything besides a box mix from me! I simply made strawberry cupcakes (but you could use red velvet), frosted them with white frosting once they cooled and added blue cotton candy for their hair. With cotton candy it hardens and turns yucky after about an hour so decorate and then eat!
2) Thing 1 and Thing 2 Marshmallow Pops
I LOVE marshmallow pops as they’re simple and effective. Using a black edible marker I got at hobby Lobby I drew on marshmallows. First pierce them with a cake pop stick then decorate. Lastly stick them in a cake pop holder and use blue frosting to pipe on crazy Thing hair!
3) Thing 1 and Thing 2 Strawberries
I was rushing and therefore these didn’t take a great picture but quite simply you gouge a strawberry and stuffed it with either a mini marshmallow or piece of mozzarella string cheese. Paint the numbers 1 and 2 on with edible marker and then finish off their hair with blue colored cream cheese.
Grab these FREE Dr Seuss Thing 1 and Thing 2 printables from Obseussed and add them to cupcakes, on a toothpick of just using tape anywhere you need to do Thing 1 and Thing 2.
5) Thing 1 and Thing 2 Costumes
Find either red onesie pjs or a red top and bottoms and then attach these FREE printable Thing 1 and 2 to their shirt. My kids loved this especially when I spiked their hair in a crazy style with gel.
History of Dr Seuss
Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as the beloved Dr. Seuss, was born in 1904 on Howard Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. Ted’s father, Theodor Robert, and grandfather were brewmasters in the city. His mother, Henrietta Seuss Geisel, often soothed her children to sleep by “chanting” rhymes remembered from her youth. Ted credited his mother with both his ability and desire to create the rhymes for which he became so well known.
About Dr Seuss Books
At the time of his death on September 24, 1991, Ted had written and illustrated 44 children’s books, including such all-time favorites as Green Eggs and Ham, Oh, the Places You’ll Go, Fox in Socks, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. His books had been translated into more than 15 languages. Over 200 million copies had found their way into homes and hearts around the world.
Besides the books, his works have provided the source for eleven children’s television specials, a Broadway musical and a feature-length motion picture. Other major motion pictures are on the way.
His honors included two Academy awards, two Emmy awards, a Peabody award and the Pulitzer Prize.
