One Fish, Two Fish, Create a New Fish

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.

On the Food Network, they had a Dr. Seuss cake challenge. The Cat in the Hat, in his whole balancing act...the Grinch with his sled...Sam I am coming up through a platter of green eggs and ham... It was incredible. There's probably a repeat and/or you can find a bit of it on YouTube or via AOL if you're a member.

Oooh, I have to go find that on YouTube. Thanks, Sara!

I love her Dr. Seuss tray. Thanks for sharing it. Often on walks my kids identify "Seussian" trees, feathers, driftwood, etc. It will be fun to see them make some of their own.

Christine, you're welcome. It's great seeing kids using their literary eyes to look at the world!

If you get even more inspired, I just added a YouTube video of a Dr. Seuss Cake Challenge.
