Inside: 10 fun Dr. Seuss activities for toddlers that are much simpler and hands-on. Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2nd with some of these ideas!
When I think of Dr. Seuss activities for toddlers, I think of hands-on, colorful, fun ideas.
There are a lot of Dr. Seuss activities out there for preschoolers and older children, but not as much for our younger children.
Dr. Seuss’ birthday is March 2, and we celebrate in both our 2s and 3s classes with a Dr. Seuss Week. We keep it much simpler for our younger children, so that is why I was thrilled to find the ideas I am featuring in this post. All of them allow lots of hands-on exploration!
