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 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.

 

 

Left Foot Right Foot Relay Races
Set up some fun relay races with a Dr. Seuss theme:
Make teams and race relay style while:  
Trying to run with a blown up balloon between their legs
Using a jump rope
Balancing a few objects like a tea cup, ball and book 

 

 

Hop on Pop Relay Game
Have two teams of party guests race relay style across the room and back by one at a time hopping across the game area.  When they have finished the relay start again by having them do the relay hopping backwards.

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 container. 

 

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 Happy Birthday To You Quotes

 

 

Today you are you!
That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”
- Happy Birthday To You

I am what I am!

That’s a great thing to be!

If I say so my self, Happy Birthday to me!

 

 

You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.

 

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is youer than you.

A Wasn’t just isn’t. He just isn’t present.
But you… You ARE YOU! And, now isn’t that pleasant! If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good! Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

 

Kid you'll move mountains!

Today is your day!

Your mountain is waiting

So.. get on your way!"

 

 

 

Be who you are and say what you feel

Because those who mind don’t matter

And those who matter don’t mind.
