How a Dr. Seuss Day Planner Can Help You Make Fun Happen
You know all those fun holidays and special events that you want to celebrate with your kids, but they somehow slip through the cracks of your busy life?
It’s tough. Homeschool life, home management, extracurricular activities. And I apparently live in a home of Hobbits that require second breakfast and third snack!
Oh and I squirrel. I have the best of intentions. Truly, I do.
I even create Pinterest boards and fill them with an amazing array of activities to enjoy with my boys. (Psst! You can follow my Dr. Seuss Pinterest board HERE.)
And then those activities sit there, just waiting for me to wipe the dust off and use them with my boys.
When my boys and I nearly missed celebrating Trivia Day on January 4, I decided that I needed to do something different and take action.
Something that is simple, organized, and cute. Because I’ll be much more likely to use it if it’s cute!
After a bit of trial and error, Fun Day Planners were the ticket.
Tips & Tricks for Using Your Dr. Seuss Day Fun Planner
A fun day planner can help you turn your ideas into reality.
As a simple, one-page printable with categories, the fun day planner encourages you to narrow down your ideas. After sifting through your Pinterest board or magazine clippings, you select the activities that best fit the needs of your family or class.
Or you have kids that detest the idea of getting their hands messy. Well, stick to crafts that keep those fingers clean! No need to add stress to your celebration. You know your kids best 😉
- Jot down all of those ideas on a piece of paper or directly on your Dr. Seuss Day Fun Planner.
- Now, it’s time to narrow down again. Because your goal is to keep things simple and easy to execute and enjoy.
- For books, pick a few. There’s nothing better than snuggling up with favorites like The Cat in the Hat or The Lorax.
- You may decide that your crew can handle 2-3 activities with no problems. Go ahead and jot down those ideas.
- For your snack and craft, pick just one of each. You’ll be so tempted to include 3 or 4 adorable activities here but, remember, you don’t want the stress (or guilt when you didn’t get to it!).
WooHoo! You’ve made your final decisions. See, it wasn’t that hard 😉
Determine what materials you’ll need for each category. Make a list (you can use the back of your Dr. Seuss Day Fun Planner), pick a spot to store all of the materials, and figure out what you’ll need to go to make it happen.
These simple steps will help you be prepared to enjoy a relaxed yet fun Dr. Seuss Day celebration. You’ll be ready for easy fun with your kids!
