This whole week our school has celebrated Dr. Suess's birthday. Each day has been themed based on a Dr. Suess book. I'm dressed up accordingly nearly every day. Today was the grand finale. The kids had Green Eggs and Ham for breakfast in the cafeteria, my sweet mom visited with a book reading and little prize bags, we read Seuss books, made Ooblek (it took some furious sweeping and scrubbing to clean that up), a Dr. Suess skit put on for the kids by the teachers, and we made our own Trufulla forests.
Behold Truffula trees made by the hands of kindergartners.
Cute aren't they? I love kids' crafts that have the same basic supplies and idea and then the kids get to take it whatever directions they want. I love their fearless creativity. Few of them let the their inability to cut a straight line or always color within the lines deter them from crafting their little hearts out.
