Cats in Hats and a Parade of Things

The boys enjoyed creating their handprint apple orchard so much that we did something similar with Dr. Seuss's "Things".

Once again the boys painted their hands.

it tickles

Then made prints.

While Mini Man was napping Buddy added bodies, numbers, eyes, & mouths.

We then decided you can't have Things with out Cats In Hats so we made some of those too.

Big Buddy and I worked together to cut parts out of red and white paper.

We then glued the pieces together and finished it off with googly eyes and markers.

glue sticks work better when you make motor sounds :)

I love making these fun projects with my boys and watching them beam with pride when daddy or a visitor comments on their work.
