The Seussville website provides teachers with over 100 Dr. Seuss learning activities for school children. The activities are based on books by Dr. Seuss and include illustrations and instructions. More examples of the available activities are "Juggling Cat," "McBoing Boing Maze" and "Tic-Tac-Toe." Activities range from coloring book pages to secret message decoders.

For a hands on activity, try making the sensory play based on Seuss' book "Green Eggs and Ham." To create the green egg sensory play, mix equal parts multipurpose glue and liquid starch, and then add green liquid food coloring. To make the yolk, cut a circle out of green foam.

Children may also enjoy creating a mask inspired by Seuss' book "Horton Hears a Who." To make the mask, cut two strips of gray construction paper, two gray elephant ears with space for a tab and two pink elephant ears. Glue the pink ears to the gray ears, and then staple the strips together to make a headband. Fold the tabs of the ears and glue them onto the headband. Fold another strip of gray paper like an accordion, and then unfold and glue to the center of the headband to make the trunk.
