There’s No Place Like Space

Welcome to the Dr. Seuss Birthday Blog Hop! In honor of Theodor Seuss Geisel’s birth in 1904, I am joining 7 other bloggers to share our love of all things Dr. Seuss with you! Although my chosen book There’s No Place Like Space: All About Our Solar System was not actually written by Dr. Seuss, it was written in his style, with the blessing of his family and publishing company, and is in the famed Cat in the Hat Library. We created 2 space-themed projects to go along with this book and we hope you will enjoy doing them in your home…

Cup” is a fun way to sneak in those random activities.

Most of these activities are…

Lego Crafts -aka I Discovered Mod Podge-
