The Grinch Grow Your Heart Game and The Cat in the Hat Cleans This and That are two fun online game ideas for kids to play from the work of Dr. Seuss. The game with the Grinch has the player help the Grinch's heart grow by delivering gifts to Whoville.
In The Cat in the Hat Cleans This and That, the player helps the cat move his cleaning machine around the messy home, picking up all of the mess that he has caused. Basic motor skills come into play, as well as the lesson about keeping things neat.
The PBS Kids website offers a number of Dr. Seuss-related games. One of the online options, Clatter Clang Island, has the player move the Cat in the Hat in a car along from gate to gate, with some basic tasks that involve matching colors and shapes. Pressing the space bar and directional arrows gets the car to move, testing the motor functions of the player.
Kids who are a little older on the PBS Kids website are likely to enjoy Cat's Math Safari, which combines the fun of a quest-based adventure game with skills in basic math facts. The PBS Kids website also offers a number of printable activities, such as mazes, coloring pages and paper craft ideas.
