Enjoy these creative Dr. Seuss & Cat in the Hat games with your kids and inspire a love of reading!
There’s nothing like a game to encourage a child to pick up a book!
And some of the best books that lend themselves to being turned into a game are those created by Dr. Seuss — like these Wacky Wednesday activities & If I Ran the Zoo game — so creative, colorful and full of fun ideas.
17 Dr Seuss Games & Cat in the Hat Activities
With the coming months having a TON of reading events and activities (including the celebration of Dr. Suess’ birthday – Read Across America on March 2nd!) – it’s time to pull out your favorite Seuss books! Quite a few of these games also have FREE printables to use with the book and we’re including affiliate links for items that will lend to an AWESOME story time activity or reading celebration!
While we LOVE the nonfiction Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library series — we are pairing some of those Dr Seuss books with science activities for kids — almost everyone has a favorite ‘classic Seuss’ book from childhood.
For today’s post, I thought a collection of Dr. Seuss games for some of these favorites was in order! Kids learn so much while playing a game. In addition to practicing their reading, writing and math skills, they also learn about negotiation, communication and social skills too.
And these games are so much fun to play! Spend some time reading & exploring a few of these Dr. Seuss stories and then enjoy a creative game together. And in classic Seuss style — if kids want to change the rules or mix things up, let them 😉
Also, be sure to check out the HUGE selection of Dr. Seuss Printable Games and Activities on Etsy too – great ideas for classroom parties here!
