crafting with grandma - Dr. Seuss & the Foot Book

In just a week we will be beginning the month of March; since Dr Seuss' birthday is on March 2nd, I thought it would be fun to look at a Dr. Seuss craft today! But, first, a bit of info (I found on Wiki) on the man known to children everywhere as Dr. Seuss . . . 
  • His actual name was Theodor Seuss Geisel
  • He was born in Springfield, Massachusetts 
  • He wrote his books under the pen names of Dr. Seuss, Theo LeSieg and one time as Rosetta Stone!
  • He wrote 46 children's books!
  • His first book, "And to Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street" was rejected by publishers 27 times   
  • He drew political cartoons during World War II
  • His pen name Theo LeSieg, LeSieg is Geisel spelled backwards! 
So . . . as I thought about the month of March and Dr. Seuss' birthday, I browsed on Pinterest and found a really fun craft, which of course, I'm sharing with you! 

One of the many books Dr. Seuss wrote is all about feet! So, if you were to enjoy this book with your grandchildren, it would be great fun to then make your own family's foot book! Just follow this link for the specifics and have fun making your family's foot prints . . . and enjoy this short video of the book!
