Dr. Seuss-A-Thon {Horton Hears A Who and Horton Hatches the Egg}

Hello there and welcome to another Dr. Seuss-A-Thon post!

Are you enjoying all the Dr. Seuss fun?

This coming Saturday, March 2nd, is Dr. Seuss' birthday, so in celebration, we're going to have a few more Dr. Seuss posts this week!

Today, we're starting with some fun Horton Activities for the books Horton Hears A Who and Horton Hatches the Egg. I love them BOTH! Since these are a couple of Dr. Seuss' more popular books, there are a lot of fun ideas out there. Here are some of the fun activities we did.

Create A Horton
We downloaded and printed this template from Finally in First and put it together on a piece of construction paper.

You could also make a Horton costume like this one or this one.

My little guy particularly enjoyed gluing on the googly eyes (you can find them at craft stores or even the dollar store).

Make Pink Clovers
Make some pink clovers (from Horton Hears A Who).

We used these airbrush markers...

...to spray cotton balls pink.

Then we fastened them to construction paper with tape and added the stems with markers.

You could also make clovers from yarn or a pink clover snack like these from Blue Skies Ahead.

Decorate Eggs
Easter's not the only time you can color eggs! Decorate and color some eggs in honor of Horton's red and white polka-dot egg in Horton Hatches The Egg.

It's also great practice for coloring eggs for Easter here in a few weeks.

Make a Nest
What are eggs without a nest? We made a simple nest for our eggs using strips of crimped paper.

And of course Horton had to sit on the nest!

We had so much fun with Horton!

I'm sharing some of our Dr. Seuss-A-Thon activities via Instagram and Twitter. If you're joining us, I'd love it if you would share too, and use #DrSeussAThon when posting.
