For our preschool celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, the students made Thing 1 and Thing 2 with their handprints.
I saw this activity on Pinterest and had to plan it for Dr. Seuss day.
The first handprint is in red paint printed upside down with the fingers pointing down to be the Thing’s shirt. The next handprint is in blue with the fingers pointing up. Only paint the fingers blue for the hair and paint the palm of the hand white for the face.
Allow the paint to dry. Paint a face on the white part of the Thing. Write Thing 1 or Thing 2 in black paint on the red handprint.
(The picture below does not show the Thing 1 printed on the red shirt. The red paint was not dry enough at the time of the picture.)
