Listen, I’m not always on top of different holidays, and I’m for sure not put together enough to have themed activities prepped for said holidays. So if you’re my people, and you’ve waited until the last minute to find something to do to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day – NO WORRIES. I’ve scoured Pinterest for some last minute activities to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day! I’ve sorted them by book title, in-case your kid has a favorite that you want to focus on!

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
- FREE Goldfish Activity Printables: These are ADORABLE and you only need a working printer (and some ink) + goldfish! If you’ve got rainbow goldfish you’ve got even more options. The printable pack includes activity sheets that cover: color sorting, number recognition 1-20, counting 1-10, patterns, and color word recognition.
- One Fish, Two Fish Number Match: If you’re printer is out of order, NO WORRIES. Here’s another great fish activity! You just need some paper, and something to write with. Even if you don’t have colored construction paper, just let them color the different fish!
- The Lorax Inspired Tie Dyed Coffee Filters: VERY simple, and super fun to make! All you need is: coffee filters, washable markers, a spray bottle + water, and a tray of some sort. Even your tiniest of humans can probably handle this one!
The Cat In The Hat
- Cat in the Hat Name Puzzle: All you need is some red and white paper, a marker, and some glue! Very minimal prep, and even if you don’t have red paper, that’s one more thing the kids can do – just make them color some of the strips red!
- Cat in the Hat Word Puzzle: If your kids are past spelling their name, try this hat puzzle instead! Again, just some paper, a marker and some glue and you are GOOD TO GO, momma!
- Stack The Cat’s Hat STEM Challenge: This might be pushing it as far as what you’ve got available at home, butttt I had the red cups so I thought someone else might too LOL. The cups plus some paper and BOOM, instant activity that’s on theme.
I hope you’re able to use one of these ideas to celebrate! Have any other easy Dr. Seuss activities to share? I’d love to hear!
