Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft

Sharing is caring!

Which are your favorite Dr. Seuss’s characters? The Cat In The Hat and Green Eggs And Ham are the first books that introduced my kids and me to Dr Seuss’s world. So Thing 1 and Thing 2 are definitely among our favorite characters. Today we’re going to create a Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft to go along with the book.

These two trouble making guys will make a nice addition to our Dr Seuss craft collection. Thing 1 and Thing 2 windsocks are still our favorites though last year we created a shape Cat in the hat and it one turned out so adorable.

Some of our crafts come with templates and this is one of them. You can use it or you can draw your own. Our template is a very simple one, made up of just four patterns. Kids will cut them out and glue them together to create Thing 1 or Thing 2 or both of them.

We love easy crafts (check out our collection of 200+ simple crafts for kids) and paper crafts are the best. They make great classroom crafts that require no prep work.

How to make the Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft

The Thing 1 and Thing 2 template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.

STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR HOME CRAFTING

To make  Thing 1 and Thing 2 you will need 1 red body, 1 white face, 1 blue hair and 1 white circle.
