Dr Seuss Cat In The Hat Story Spoons

I really am a big fan of Dr Seuss The Cat In The Hat. I particularly like Thing 1 and Thing 2 and today I am sharing some fun story spoons which would make a brilliant preschool or nursery resource. This could also be a great activity to do at home and making fun crafts that are based on fun story books is a great way to encourage literacy and learning for kids.

Supplies You Will Need

Wooden Spoons

Posca Paint Pens




First you will need to get two wooden spoons. Using the pencil draw your Dr Seuss Characters Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Now you have the outline of your characters, begin by painting the face and circles using a white posca paint pen.

Next colour in the jumpers of Thing 1 and Thing 2 with a red posca paint pen.

The next step is to paint the hair of Thing 1 and Thing 2. I love that they have blue hair and think it’s so quirky and makes these characters fun to colour.

Now the main colours are filled in for your characters it is time to begin outlining the characters.

It can be tricky when using a posca pen for fine lining on wood so it’s best to do it extra carefully to ensure not too much black smudges.

Next it is time to draw the face of your characters, the eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth.

Finally add the words Thing 1 and Thing 2 to the white part of the characters jumpers. Now your done. Enjoy.
