Thing 1 & 2

   Oh the things we can do as Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Who doesn’t love those two little fun mischief makers
from the Cat in the Hat?

That’s why today we made Thing hats. 
Bright blue paper strips and scissors to go snip, snip, snip.
feb 28 003  feb 28 018
The children have been experimenting with scissors a lot lately. 
Snipping little pieces of paper whenever they can. 
This was a great activity to encourage more practice.

I always appreciate the grown ups adding or modifying
an activity.  Today a grandfather drew short lines on the
paper so his granddaughter would know where to cut
and where to stop.

It added another opportunity to practice printing and
I started encouraging new families, that approached
the art table, to do the same.

We also made ‘Thing’ badges.  The children could decide
what number they wanted to be.  Many chose their age
although some chose the first letter of their name.

Meet Thing 1, Thing Q, Thing A, Thing 3 and then there is Thing L
and Thing P Cat too.

           It was another fun Seuss day.


  1. Love Pete in his Thing P hair! I will have to show my Pete hat creators.
