Dr. Seuss Hop on Pop Activity Twin Sheet Tutorial

Friday, February 18, 2011

To prepare for Read Across America Day (Dr. Seuss' Birthday) on March 2, we are reading Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss.

I decided to bring Hop on Pop to life by drawing POP on a sheet so the kids can HOP on him.
They had a SEUSStastic time!

See below for how to do this.

Creating a Hop on Pop Twin Sheet

Check your local thrift store. I found a 'looks new' pastel yellow sheet set for $3.00.
Use the fitted sheet for this project.

If you don't want to attempt freehand sketching, you can always try getting an overhead projector and making a copy of the page on transparency paper then tape the sheet to a wall to trace the image. Way too hard for such a simple line drawing in this case. The kids won't pay that close of attention. It is the thought that counts.  Just try doing it with a pencil first if you are worried.

Visit the page tabs at the top of this blog for more Dr. Seuss activity ideas to get ready for Dr. Seuss' Birthday.

Wow. Super creative project V. Not convinced that most people could free hand something like this, but...

It seems like the boys are always jumping on the furniture. They would love to do something like this. You're a fun mom!

Love this idea. I am a huge Seuss fan! I decorated my living room in "Seuss Flavor" this past holiday season. If you get a chance, hop on over to my blog - I have pictures posted there of Seuss room.
Love this blog by the way.
