Dr Seuss!!

Posted on April 15, 2020 at 11:27 AM by Tiffany Miller

Good Morning Everyone!!

I have been thinking a lot about encouragement. How important it is to encourage everyone around us. I am a firm believer that a smile can change someones whole day, and a negative word can last a life time. 

Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite people of all times. He has amazing ways of encouraging people of all ages. His books are fun and full of knowledge. My nephews will Face-time and we will read books together. I was reading them some Dr. Seuss books and was encouraged again by his words. I have used many of his book to teach lesson to students during camps or even in staff training. My favorite is the Lorax and the story of Unless. "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better its not." This quote has made the biggest impact on my life and I try to apply it in everything I do. 

Today is about Dr Seuss, so here are some fun ways to have some fun and be encouraged today!!

SNACKS:
Dr Seuss Cat in the Hat Snack
All you need are bananas, strawberries, a big marshmallow and a stick.
Cur the strawberries and bananas into slices and stack them one on top of the other until it looks like the cats hat. Add the marshmallow on the bottom. You now have a fun cat in the hat treat. 

Green Eggs and Ham
You an do just about anything with this treat. Just add green food coloring to any type of food and make it look like green eggs and ham. The kids will love the fun surprise and treat. 

Coloring Pages:
I love to color. It is such a great stress relief and it's fun to create. Here is a link for you to be able to print and color some Dr Seuss pages.http://www.getcoloringpages.com/dr-seuss-coloring-pages

Quotes:
Dr Seuss has some of the best quotes of all time. I encourage you to find your favorite and print them off and have them all over the house. Here are a few of my favorite. 
Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Don’t give up! I believe in you all. A person’s a person, no matter how small.

There are so many things you can learn about, but you’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.

And will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

I hope that these quotes can encourage you and make you smile. It's very easy to feel upset still about everything that's going on. Things are so uncertain and it's hard, but we can find hope and encouragement in the little things. Today I encourage you to do the same. Find some quotes and stick them all over the house. Teach your kids how to encourage others. Let them think of some ways to do the same. We will get through this all together, because UNLESS we care its not going to get better.
