Everyone loves Dr. Seuss. In fact, I don’t know a single person who doesn’t like Dr. Seuss. One of the great things about him is his extremely positive messages delivered in just about every one of his wonderful books and in just about every famous quote of his. You can make a lot of fun activities with a Dr. Seuss theme and many of your favorite Dr. Seuss books.
I created a Dr. Seuss Activity Pack full of our favorite Dr. Seuss activities for young children that include 13 puzzles with over 45 pages of super Dr. Seuss fun that’s perfect Doctor Seuss activities for preschoolers! Dr. Seuss Week is always a fun week, kicking off on March 2nd as Dr. Seuss Day (aka Dr. Seuss’s birthday), but there are so many different ways and fun ideas in honor of Dr. Seuss and his fun books every other day of the year to grow the love of reading and learning fun!

A Few Highlights from the Pack Include:
Dr Seuss Coloring Pages Printable
Everything inside this packet is colorable, but specifically there are coloring sheets for the kids to color with all the popular characters. You’ll find a coloring sheet for Sam I Am and Green Eggs and Ham, among other fun coloring pages.
Dr Seuss Story Scene Cutouts
Story scene cutouts are a big hit in out home! Have you tried them? You should! Here’s how to use them:
Cut out the different story scenes for the Dr. Seuss Activity Pack. Glue the back of the scenes to popsicle sticks. Then as you read your favorite Dr. Seuss book, reenact the various scenes with the scene cutouts!
To go a step further, video your kiddo acting out the scenes as you’re reading Dr. Seuss’ book and then send it to granda, grampa, and/or Dad – like we do!
Green Eggs and Ham is a fun Dr. Seuss book to do this with, as well as when Horton Hatches or when he hears a Who, but they’re all pretty special to do with the story scene cutouts!
It would be a good idea, too, to make lesson plans out of this activity pack!
Copywork from Famous Dr. Seuss Quotes
In his book, I love to read the positive messages that he writes throughout the books and at the end of the books. They’re all pretty great books for kids and these books seem to leave a lasting impression on them.
Inside the activity pack I’ve included famous quotes from Dr. Seuss for the kids to copy. In some copyworks pages, I’ve included an area where they can draw what they think the quote means. This helps with them to retain the positive message and comprehend it more clearly. Plus, it’s a wonderful conversation starter between you and the kiddos.
Tracing Dr Seuss Characters
There’s a few variations of tracing and drawing inside the pack.
Dr Seuss Activities for Preschool: Benefits of Puzzles for Kids
Kids that oftentimes use puzzles or brain games strengthen certain skill areas more than if they weren’t using puzzles and thinking games. Speaking of which, the activities included in this pack help with several benefits for kids, such as:
- Hand-Eye Coordination
- Shape recognition
- Strengthen concentration and patience
- Helps build problem solving and self-correcting skills
- Memory and cognitive skills
- Fine Motor Skills
- Many other benefits!
Skills, such as the ones listed above, are so good for your kids to continue building and growing as they develop, mentally and physically. Puzzles and brain games are particularly wonderful for kids to do, beginning all the way from toddlerhood!
