"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than You!"
We made a fun craft of thing 1 and thing 2!
First we traced her footprints, then she cut them out and this became the bodies.
Then she glued on the bodies, then the circles of 1 and 2 and their heads.
Next she dipped her hands in blue paint to make their wild hair, then decorated their features with markers.
(To lighten the blue use a little white paint, we were out so their hair was bluer than blue!, lol)
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind!" Dr. Seuss (One of my favorites!)
We also created a special story book compliments of Kathleen's imagination! To become a great storyteller like Dr. Seuss!
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"
"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go!"
Then we got into the really cool stuff and made oobleck!! If you have children or grandchildren this is a must do! They will play in it forever!! :-) So much fun!
1 cup water
1 1/2 - 2 cups cornstarch
A few drops of food coloring
Put water in a bowl first, then cornstarch, start stirring with a spoon first. Then use hands to mix, the goal is to have the consistency be liquid yet solid :-) Add food coloring and mix well!
Have lots of fun and wash up when done!
Today we left the food coloring out of ours because Kathleen has dance class and a busy weekend ahead and it does stain. Without the color it is a quick and easy cleanup! :-) O.k. I admit I played in it too! LOL
Love her expression here!
It really does have the coolest consistency! Be sure to read the Oobleck book as well!
When the drops hit the table, magic was happening ....;-)
When Hayley got home she had to try it too!
Of course we had to read some of our favorite Dr. Seuss books as well!
These are just a couple of the many wonderful stories he created :-)
Thank you Dr. Seuss you will forever live on in the hearts of children and adults everywhere!
"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting...so...get on your way!"
Hope you all have a magical day!! We're surprising the girls this weekend and going to see The Lorax!
I'll let you know how it is :-)
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
Enjoy playing with the oobleck, if you do give it a try tell me what you think of it, ;-)
