We like nonsense… it wakes up the brain cells! Welcome to another wacky Wednesday… and today we have an array of Dr. Seuss fun for kids! Think left and think right and think low and think high, these activities will help make the day whoosh right by!

We know that staying home during COVID19 can be a challenge. Therefore, each day schools are closed, (cool) progeny will offer easy activities to keep the the whole family engaged. If you try any of these activities, post pictures to Facebook and Instagram and tag us (#coolprogeny and @coolprogeny). After all, we’re all in this together!

You can download a PDF of these ideas here.

Did you miss a day? No worries! You can view all of our (cool) fun at home ideas here.

Day 23 - Wacky Dr. Seuss Fun for Kids

Cool Fun at Home: Wacky Wednesday Seuss Fun for Kids!

EXPLORE

Paint-less Painting

Fill a paint tray or small bucket with about 2″ of water. Provide a selection of paint brushes and rollers, and invite the kids to “paint” the deck, driveway, door or sidewalk. This activity helps to build hand-eye coordination — and this twist on painting has little to no clean up! 

LEARN

Fizzy Seuss Science

Try the Green Eggs and Ham Experiment! Get ready to experience some egg-ceptional fun with this simple chemical reaction experiment from Little Bins for Little Hands.

CREATIVITY CHALLENGE

Make a Wacky Sock Puppet

The Center For Puppetry Arts has a great tutorial that will teach your child how to create their own puppets from socks!  This is a perfect way to give new purpose to those lonely socks that can’t find their match!  

MOVE

Dance Lessons from The Cat in the Hat

Dance Lessons from the “big” cat himself! Check out this video that will  teach your child a new dance — and the instructor is none other than the Cat with the red and white hat!

LEGO LESSONS

Seussical Landscapes

Our (cool) friends at Snapology of Towson-Perry Hall are hosting a Dr. Seuss Themed Lego Challenge Class via Zoom from 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM! (Perfect way to celebrate all things wacky, colorful, and imaginative — plus keep the kiddos busy!) The class is for kids ages 4-14 and is purposefully small so kids have lots of instructor attention. Just $10/child. Register here!

DE-STRESS

Wacky Stress Ball

This DIY “wacky sack” stress ball from Somewhat Simple is easy to make and will provide hours of fun for the kiddos. All you need is a regular balloon, Play-doh, and a sharpie marker! Perfect boredom buster and an even better way to use up some of you “mixed” up playdough. 

BRAIN BREAK

Dr. Seuss PBS Kid Grames

Your kid will love the games and activities at Seussville.com! Pbskids.org has another super fun Cat in the Hat site with fun games and full episodes! (They think they’ll be getting a brain break — so don’t tell them they’re learning!)
