Get crafty with Dr. Seuss

Visit Seussville

Go deep inside the Jungle of Nool, Whoville or Mulberry Street where you can play tons of games and activities that are fun for the whole family.

Have a kid-friendly talk about family values

Dr. Seuss' books are not just full of memorable characters and silly fun, they have powerful messages that ring true decades later. Jam-packed with themes like civil rights, corruption, corporate greed, racism and environmental protection, his books are the perfect jumping-off point for a serious discussion about family values with your children.

Plan a Dr. Seuss movie night

Make the magic come alive with a Dr. Seuss movie night. There are so many fun films to choose from. If you haven’t seen the most recent release, The Lorax, you are in for a treat! Dive into the technicolor world of The Lorax and discover a breathtaking tale about the importance of caring for our environment.

Learn tongue-twisters

Love tongue-twisters? Dr. Seuss is your new best friend. Have fun trying to wrap your tongue around phrases like, "I like to box. How I like to box! So, every day I box a Gox. In yellow socks I box my Gox. I box in yellow Gox box socks." Extra points if you can do it while standing on one foot, rubbing your belly and patting your head!

Write your own “Seussical” story

Let your imagination run free when you get the family together to write your own "Seussical" story. Whether you use Dr. Seuss' zany characters or come up with your own creative critters, you are guaranteed to have a good time.

Make Seuss-inspired treats

Add a bit of eye-popping, mouth-watering fun to your day with a Seuss-inspired snack. Try creating Dr. Seuss' crazy characters on cupcakes. Draw on marshmallows with edible markers to turn them into mini Cat in the Hat hats. Or, turn a regular pretzel rod into a truffula tree with a colorful tuft of cotton candy on top. The possibilities are endless!
