We Celebrate March 2nd... Dr. Suess Birthday Activities!!

In our house we LOVE Dr. Seuss!! Every year on his birthday March 2nd we do lot's of Seuss activities. This year we went and saw The Lorax and it was GREAT, one of the best versions of a classic Dr. Seuss story!!
My boys favorite Seuss Activity is making Oobleck... they can play in it for hours!! We read the story Bartholomew and the Oobleck  and then make this really easy gooey, sticky fun Oobleck :)

Oobleck Recipe:
- 1 cup water
- 1.5-2 cups corn starch
- a few drops of food coloring of your choice

I usually double the recipe and keep it in a large airtight container so they can play in it for a couple of days!!
We also made Truffula Trees!! If you have seen The Lorax you will notice that the Once-ler gives marshmallow to the barbaloots and my boys love marshmallow so we made our Truffula Tress with marshmallows... YUMMY!!
