This week has been a fun week as schools around the country (and probably around the world) are celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday with reading related activities. For my twin first graders they wore Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts on Monday, dressed as a character from their favorite book and joined in for “Read my shirt day” today.
Last week a friend of mine asked for cookies to go with her special reading day at her daughter’s school. Today she will read Oh, the Places You’ll Go while wearing a graduation cap. She asked for graduation cap cookies in bright colors similar to the fun colors in the book.
I set to work making these bright cookies and added these yellow and pink balloon hangtags. Whenever I think of this book I think of the balloon floating into the air so I wanted to incorporate that into the cookie packaging.
I hope the kids enjoy their special guest reader and cookies today!
