Over at the blog LaPaz Home Learning, you'll find some terrific ideas for creating creatures inspired by Dr. Seuss books. A Montessori-inclined home-educator, Theresa posts generous details and photographs of her children's learning experiences. Her easily assembled "Dr. Seuss Creature Creator" set-up looks like so much fun that we're going to try it soon. Do read the follow-up post, too, to see the actual Seussian animals that were made. When I read the La Paz entries, I am reminded of how far a little prep work can go.
Speaking of prep work, lots of it in another case, I located the Dr. Seuss Cake Challenge from the Food Network earlier this year. Many thanks to Sara Lewis Holmes for pastry tip.
