Every year we have fun celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday (March 2) with some fun activities and crafts to go with our favorite Dr. Seuss books.
This year we picked up Daisy-Head Mayzie to read for the first time and had fun with this Daisy-Head Mayzie craft!
To make the headband for our craft, I cut 2 inch thick strips of yellow construction paper. We taped 2 strips together at one end. To make sure the headband will fit, we then wrapped it around the forehead, securing the opposite ends together with tape to make a snug fit.
Next we cut 3 inch wide yellow circles for our daisy centers and enough petals to form our flower.
These were glued together.
The last step was to cut a green pipe cleaner in half to form the daisy’s stem. A bit of tape secured it to the back of the daisy and inside the headband.
It was fun to pretend to be Daisy-Head Mayzie as we read this Dr. Seuss book together.
I’m looking forward to lots more Dr. Seuss fun in the next couple weeks.
