A Seuss-y Christmas

Since it's almost Christmas time, I thought I'd share what we did for our kid's holiday event last year at the library! We've had a holiday event every year that I've worked at the library, and we are constantly trying to come up with new themes. Last year we finally decided to go with Dr. Seuss, and I'm glad we did. It was a lot of fun!


We kept the decorations simple, with Christmas trees, colorful candy, and a display of our favorite Seuss books. We also got some fun hats from Oriental Trading.

For one of our activities we used the book There's a Wocket in my Pocket! First we read it out loud, then we sent the kids on a scavenger hunt to see how many of the silly monsters they could find.



When they were finished with their scavenger hunt, we had them sit down and make these sweets frames (from Oriental Trading again) while we read them How the Grinch Stole Christmas. For our final activity we had the children pin the heart on the Grinch. This was one of their favorite activities. Many of them asked to have more than one turn!


This was a cute program, with many ideas that could be adapted towards any situation. We kept it rather simple, but there is no end to the activities you could do with an idea like this!
