Thing 1 Hat : Easy Dr Seuss Dress-up Idea

Need a book character costume in a pinch?  This Thing 1 Hat is the perfect solution! Thing 1 Hat: Easy Dr. Seuss Costume Dr Seuss’ birthday is coming up on March 2nd and that means “Dress Like Your Favorite Book Character” day is coming up for our school as well.  I’m going to put a little confession out there.  Shh..don’t tell our school PTO..or my kids.  I HATE character dress up days! I know hate is such a strong word, but I really do hate them!  Despise them!  Wish they didn’t exist.  I’m just not creative enough to put together a costume that turns my boys into someone else. My mind doesn’t work that way and it seems as though there aren’t that many options for boys.  But…this Thing 1 Hat is the perfect solution!  It’s easy to make and you can just put your kid in a red shirt with the hat, and you are done.   Even if you don’t need it for a costume, this is a fun Dr. Seuss craft to make!

Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt

This Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt will add some excitement to your next family hike or camping trip. Nature Scavenger Hunt There is really nothing better, in my opinion, than being high up in the mountains surrounded by nature and the beauties of the earth.  When we visit family in Utah, we try to take advantage of the mountains as much as we can. My boys are used to heat, dirt and tumbleweeds, while cool summer evenings, pine trees and quaking aspen are foreign to them.  So it is no surprise that they want to go hiking in the mountains as often as we can.  I put together a fun Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt for them to add some excitement to our hikes and camping trips.

Superhero Word Bubbles for LEGO Superheroes
