These Cat in the Hat crafts are great Dr Seuss activities for preschoolers, kindergartners and older kids to make in the classroom or at home with mom or dad. Make them part of your Dr Seuss arts and crafts and give them a try in March or any other day of the year.
If you are going to celebrate Dr Seuss birthday on March 2nd and plan on reading some of his books to your kids, make sure to include one or more of these fun crafts. I put together a list of 24 kid crafts inspired by one of our favorite books: The Cat in the Hat.
All these Dr Seuss craft ideas are super cute and great for kids of all ages. They will get a chance to create many Cat and the Hat crafts but also Thing 1 and Thing 2 as well as the fish.
If you are a teacher, you can use these Cat in the Hat craft ideas in your classroom. My kindergartner read books and made a new craft every day of their Dr Seuss week. One day he even came home with our The Lorax.
