Dr. Seuss' Birthday

Yesterday was Dr. Seuss' birthday, so we, like last year, had a ton of activities throughout the day. Our principal read The Lorax to the entire school, then we went outside and each grade level planted a tree (graciously donated by Lowe's). We also had cupcakes, and a visit from the Cat in the Hat, who read us his story. The best part of the day, of course, was the fact that we all got to dress up like Dr. Seuss characters. Even though I had to give up my Friday=Jeans Day, it was a blast and the kids really enjoyed it. I made a no-sew-tutu (like the ones I made for babies before, but of course with a LOT more tulle) and painted a star on my belly to be a Star-Bellied Sneetch from the book, The Sneetches. I also used a marabou boa to make feathered wrists and ankles, since I didn't have anything else yellow, and added feathers to a clip for my hair. It was a fun day!
