Dr. Seuss Icebreaker
A fun activity to do as guests are arriving to the party is a
guessing game. Guests must guess the closest number to how many
candies are in a jar. Before the party fill a large glass jar with
colorful candies such as Skittles, Jellybeans or M&M's ... if possible
fill the jar with red, blue and white candies.
Count the number of
candies as you are placing them inside the jar and then write the number
down and keep it in a safe place. Close the jar and set it on a
decorated table along with pens, paper and a small decorated basket or
Ask the guests to write down how many
candies or toys they think the container holds along with their name on
colorful paper and then fold it and place in the basket. Before the
party ends announce the winner. As the prize for guessing the closest
number the candy goes home with the winner.

Dr. Seuss Party Games
Fox in Socks Stomp
Have guests take off their shoes and then give them each a pair of long adult
tube socks to put on. Have them put on the socks so there is
at least 5 inches of empty sock at their toes. Then have them try
to be the last one with their socks on as they "stomp" on the socks of
the other party guests.
Horton Hears A Who Treasure Hunt
Before the party gather lots (and lots!) of plastic Easter Eggs (clover)
and fill them with candies or small toys. In one of the eggs place
a pink pompom ball. Whoever find the egg with the pink pompom ball
gets a special prize. Hide the eggs before the party. Give
each guest a paper sack to carry the clover that they collect. You
can give out one special prize or hide several special eggs.
1 Fish 2 Fish Fishing Game
Decorate a very big appliance box or sheet with the characters from the
Dr. Seuss book "One Fish Two Fish". The fish (adults or older children)
will hide behind the box and when the kids fish they will attach candy
or prizes to the "hook" (use a clothespin to attach the prizes. A
fishing pole can be easily made from a broom stick, string and a clothes
pin. Kids cast the clothespin hook into the water. Then the "fish"
attach a candy or prize to the clothespin.
