Tot School- Dr. Seuss Style Tot Trays
I may finally be ahead of the game so to speak! I keep saying that I will participate in “Virtual Book Club for Kids” and then forget to see which author is picked for the month! Low and behold I came across the announcement that Dr. Seuss was the next author. The perfect choice since I had planned to share some Tot Trays with Dr. Seuss Style anyways!
Last year for Big Red’s 2nd birthday we had a Dr. Seuss theme. I created some activities for Tot School then, but was not blogging and have not shared them, yet! Plus we have lots of new things to share. This first post will showcase TEN Dr. Seuss Themed Tot Trays!
We used both pom-poms, apple erasers, and glass marbles! We used magnetic numbers to determine how many “apples up on top”.
Super simple to set up. All you need is applesauce cups, sharpie markers, awl, and feathers! Take your awl and create holes for the feathers to be stuck in. Then write the corresponding number on the cups using sharpies For self-checking you can color coordinate the feathers and numbers.
Another great worksheet from Making Learning Fun! You could laminate it and use for play-doh or dry erase markers!
Cute printable from Making Learning Fun and some foam stamps! Using this with an almost 4 yr. old homeschooled child from CC.
Grab a handful of jumbo popsicle sticks, Mod Podge, and your favorite Dr. Seuss image. Coat the back of the image with a thin layer of Mod Podge. Lay flat onto the popsicle sticks. Allow to dry. Coat the image side with Mod Podge. Allow to dry then use x-acto or box cutter to cut the sticks apart.
The kids all got sandbox toys from Grandma for Easter last year so we do not use them all in the sand. The chopsticks were purchased from the grocery store for Chinese New Year’s and make great tongs! Pom-poms came from Dollar Tree.
We use the 10-well paint palette’s often. The scoop is an old Tupperware coffee scoop and the plastic fish were bought years ago. I used a heavy duty magnet to the applesauce cup to keep the cup from moving around.
I scanned the erasers I had purchased at Target a few years ago. Then placed them in an extra office cup.
Not sure where I found this idea originally, but Discovery Kidzone Montessori shares this. I found my non-slip bath treads at Dollar Tree and Roses Department store. Would love to trade my 2 designs with 2 other people to get 6 designs or more,lol!
These Yertle’s are walnut shells halved and emptied. We then painted them blue and hot glued pom-poms. Yertle is the sparkly pom-pom with arms and legs! This game is much harder then it looks even for adults.
Join us on a journey to Seussville all this week!
