Happy Birthday Dr Seuss

Okay, I know I am a little late with my ode to Seuss blog posting... but I was away for the weekend!

First the backstory to my blog post:
My oldest son and his friend decided to dress alike for their school's "Twin Day."  No big deal usually, but my child loves to be elaborate and went through a list of imaginative characters that they could be (which all would have resulted in tons of work for dear old me).  So I suggested Thing 1 and Thing 2 so they both could wear red t-shirts and we could keep things simple for me and the other mother.  Well, as it turned out, his friend had a Thing 1 t-shirt.  Great - I had to make a Thing 2 t-shirt; not too bad of a project (one night and only a couple of dollars).

And then it snowed.  Twin Day was post-poned for a week.  And what was the new date?  You guessed it, Dr Seuss' birthday.  So suddenly the t-shirts were just not enough.  So we decided to create a simple hat to wear to take the place of the Things' blue hair.  These were super-simple and came out incredibly cute!!!

I cut the center out of 2 paper plates and tied half of a feather boa to each plate (using embrodery floss that matched).  Instant Thing hair!  and the best part is that they could remove it and put it away if it became distracting to the class (which you all know it did).
