 Dr Seuss Cat In The Hat Treats

Today Sylvia and I are sharing a tutorial, how to make Dr Seuss Cat In The Hat Treats. As you may have noticed we have been really enjoying choosing a book and finding fun activity ideas to complete based on stories we love.

Dr Seuss Food Activity

I really love the story Cat In The Hat by Dr Seuss.  Dr Seuss has always been a favourite children’s author of mine and I love his nonsense and the way his words rhyme.

And sally and I 

did not know what to do.
so we had to shake hands
with Thing One and Thing Two.
we shook their two hands.
but our fish said, ‘no! no!
those Things should not be
in this house! make them go!
they should not be here
when your mother is not!
put them out! put them out!’
said the fish in the pot.
