Growing up Dr. Seuss books were my favorite and as an adult they still are! I love reading them to my girls and creating fun crafts for our books! When we visit Universal Studios here in Orlando Seuss Landing is the first place we always head to when visiting the park! The girls love all the fun imagination that the books provide! With Dr. Seuss’s birthday being next month we have started decorating our home with fun projects, such as this The Cat in the Hat Stained Glass Craft.
Materials needed to create your Dr. Seuss Hat:
- Red and white tissue paper (cut into squares)
- Contact paper
My girls love creating crafts with tissue paper and contact paper! I think it’s super easy and with only two materials it makes it a very affordable fun craft for kids!
Step One: Cut out two pieces of rectangular shapes with the contact paper and trace the hat on one sheet.
Step Two: Cut out red and white tissue paper into squares.
Step Three: Have your child create a pattern of lines starting with red and ending with white stripes.
I also love that this activity helps with some fine motor skills development and also a little bit of math patterning! All while doing crafts 🙂
Step Four: Lay your second sheet of contact paper sticky side down, creating a laminating affect on the craft. Cut around the marked lines and your craft is ready to be hung on a window or glass door!
What is your child’s favorite Dr.Seuss book?
