First up, these Pom Pom Bookmarks are easier to make than you would think. This quick project created by One Krieger Chick encourages reading to be fun. Young kids can participate in this craft, which will encourage them to use the bookmark after it's done.
The Country Chic Cottage blog has a great roundup of Dr. Seuss crafts. I especially love this reading log for the classroom. If I were a young reader, I would definitely think of this a game rather than a chore. Head over to Angie's blog for a printable!
Seriously, how cute is this? It is totally easy to make and so fun for kids to play with. Not sure how useful this could be in the classroom, but I'm sure a teacher would be able to come up with a creative way to integrate it. Check out 30 Minute Crafts for instructions.
Again from the Country Chic Cottage, check out this cute printable cootie catcher. Perfect entertainment for young children! If it is a rainy day like today, then this easy project might make a teacher's day.
These bulletin board ideas from Bombshell Bling are to die for. Such easy concepts, but huge results. This has definitely inspired me to take over my friend's classroom for some redecorating this weekend.
This Lorax paper plate craft is a perfect activity for young children whether at home or in the classroom. Stacey from GluedToMyCraftsBlog.com did this post for my favorite, A Night Owl Blog.
Rhyming games are a perfect way to entertain a young child through education. Check out Sweet Rose Studio for a free printable.
If you're a room mom looking for snack to bring on Dr. Seuss's birthday, these cupcakes are perfect. These seem relatively easy to make as long as you aren't frosting-challenged like I am. Check out how they are made at Sweet Rose Studio.
If you want to get a little more fancy, then head over to Catch My Party for free Dr. Seuss party printables. You'll be the talk of the school!
While we're on the topic of printables, nothing is easier than heading over to GlitterNSpice.com for chalkboard prints! You could frame them for your child's teacher or mount them on patterned piece of scrapbook paper to hang on the wall in a classroom.
As per usual, I've spent lots of time on Pinterest thinking about this day, so jump over to my board for more great ideas!
