Whatcha Making Wednesdays.... Dr. Seuss Cupcakes

This week both classes celebrated Dr. Seuess's Birthday (March 2nd)... and two of my favorite projects were the Thing 1 & Thing 2 and our Cat in the Hat cupcakes...

I saw these cute Dr. Seuss Handprint crafts on LittleKinderWarriors...and had both Tot School and K4 Make them...so fun!!! On one had we used white and blue paper and the other we used red...

Ryleigh's Thing 1 and Thing 2
 The Tot School Things.... (I didn't get a picture of the K4 classes)...

We used a box of white cake mix and some red food coloring....frosting... and sprinkles... easy...and fun!

K4 made some Dr. Suess Cupcakes... ie.... we made red and white striped cupcakes...
 
We seperated out some of the batter and added a little red food coloring...  and then alternated white and red spoonfuls....
  Frosting and decorating the cupcakes...
 
The finished "Cat in the Hat" cupcake... notice the stripes?

Some Dr. Suess Books we enjoyed this week:
  • The Cat in the Hat
  • ABC
  • Horton Hears a Who
  • The Foot Book

Those Thing 1 & 2 paintings are great.

My kids have enjoyed looking through the cooking links for inspiration for their next cooking project.

I loved the Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft with the handprints. I used a version of this at the library this morning. I didn't want to get paint out there so we traced our hands and colored them in. The kids had fun. One girl even drew them in a room and then drew scribbles everywhere representing the mess they made!
