Dr Seuss Themed Activities for a Week of Wacky Fun with your Preschoolers
This week although we recommend Wacky Wednesday as our featured book this week we are featuring activities based around many of the Dr Seuss Books – you could of course read each of the books connected with the activity or find them to watch as well as an extension of the day’s activities.
With the weekly plan we have 5 simple activities that you can choose from. Some of our community do an activity per day, others choose to do just 1 in the week. Some of the members of the Virtual Book Club for Kids Facebook Group also hold a weekly play date where they do their favourite activities all at once.
This weekly plan is just one idea – having the sensory activity first it means that it is possible to have it set up for the week ahead and your children can return to it time and time again to play.
If however, you want more preschool activities for the theme or featured book then scroll down further and you will find a link to our Dr Seuss Pinterest Board which is full of hands-on fun ways to learn, create and play.
