Fun Dr. Seuss Kids’ Crafts & Activities
Dr. Seuss has always been one of my favorite book authors, both as a child and an adult.
I read stories to my students in the classroom and now to my children of the silly rhyming books.
That’s why I’ve put together a list of some of the best Dr. Seuss crafts and activities that are perfect for kids to enjoy during the month of March.
Reading week is upon us and reading books is fun, but when you create a fun activity to go along with a book, that’s when a child’s imagination truly takes place.

Why Add A Craft Or Activity To A Book
When kids are young we are constantly encouraging them to read a book.
The more books kids read, the better readers they become allowing them to learn more in school.
While reading is important, I also want to share why I believe that adding a fun activity with a book is also important.
Especially if kids are young and are starting to read. Since most of the time, they don’t want to do it.
My youngest daughter was like this when she was young.
She loved books, but when she came to an elementary age where she had to sit and read a book she didn’t want to do it.
She wanted to play and do something “fun”. That’s when I decided that adding a craft or activity after she read.
Encouraging her and promising something more “fun” after she had done her reading.
Not only does add a craft or activity inspired by a book inspires kids to use their imagination more, but it also helps strengthen other developmental skills.
- Writing, coloring, drawing
- Fine-motor skills
- Gross-motor skills if the activity is to move
- Exploring imagination
- Decision making
These are just some of the reasons adding an activity or craft to interact with a book can become so important.
