Celebrating Seuss! Dr. Seuss Inspired Projects

by Amy Bowerman

I am a die-hard Dr. Seuss fan.  His whimsical illustrations and  tongue twisting tales have inspired me since I first read The Cat in the Hat.  My love for Dr. Seuss has stayed with me from early child hood into adulthood.  Today I am celebrating all things Seuss by sharing some of my favorite Dr. Seuss Inspired Projects.

Truffula Tree Sharpie Art

First up is my Truffula Tree Sharpie art.    The Lorax is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and this tribute to the Lorax is one of my favorite sketches EVER.  It’s also my most popular pin on Pinterest.  Unfortunately, I uploaded it before I actually knew how to use Pinterest so the link leads to no where…until now!

You can easily create your own Truffula tree art.  Just grab a Sharpie and repeat after me, “I speak for the trees!”

Oh, the Places You’ll Go Thumbprint Tree

Since we are on the subject of Trees, here is an Oh, the Places You’ll Go Thumbprint tree I created for my son’s teacher.  This Zentangled thumbprint tree was created by channeling my inner Dr. Seuss.  With the help of my son’s classmates willing to lend a “thumb” we created a Dr. Seuss inspired teacher gift to be treasured.

Dr. Seuss Teacher Gift Jar

Dr. Seuss and Teacher Gifts go together like Green eggs and ham!  This Dr. Seuss inspired gift is easy to create with a Mason Jar, Mod Podge and thrifted Seuss books.  Throw in some Sharpies and you’ll have one happy teacher.

Dr. Seuss Chalk Art

As the weather gets warmer why not celebrate with Seuss inspired Chalk Art?  My little man and I participated in a Chalk Art Contest at our local library.  The Challenge was to draw your favorite story.  At the time little man was a huge fan of “What was I Scared of?” (found in The Sneetches and Other Stories).  Who wouldn’t be spooked by a pair of pants with “nobody inside em’ ”

Grab the kids, some sidewalk chalk and your favorite story and create some Seuss inspired street art!

So what say you creative friends…what’s your favorite Dr. Seuss Story?  No matter what whimsical tale you prefer celebrate Seuss this week with some Dr. Seuss inspired art projects!

“Try it, Try it, Try it I say…create some Seuss art and do it today!”

I love Dr. Seuss and your art is fun, fun, fun! I can recite Green Eggs and Ham by heart, I used to read it to my oldest daughter Samantha (we called her Sam) LOL! I have it on a shelf over my desk in my art room. Oh The Places You Go! was the very first one I ever read and I have been going ever since, I love to travel. Thank you Amy for sharing!
