Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss!! Are you celebrating Dr.Seuss’ birthday/ Read Across America Day with your students this year? What Seussical book you will be reading? Maybe you’ll read his newest release, What Pet Should I get? (see this activity to go along with it), or the classic There’s a Wocket in my Pocket. Whatever you choose we’ve got you covered 😉

Let me tell you, this Wocket in my Pocket craft is the cutest thing since 1984 (which just so happens to be my birth year) 😉 When Craft Project Ideas sent us our latest box of crafting supplies, the idea practically jumped out of the box! I couldn’t wait to make a few Wockets with the materials!
I set the supplies in a tray and invited my (nearly) four year old to decorate the clothespins like a Wocket.
What’s a Wocket look like? I don’t really know. My there year old insisted it had rainbow clothes and fuzzy feather hair, though. The beauty of the project is there is no right/wrong way to make a Wocket, it’s all about imagination and the creative process 🙂
The majority of this project was all done by by son, but when it came time to glue the feather hair I made sure to use the hot glue gun myself. Your call on that one, though. Some 4 year olds may be ready to use a low-temperature glue gun with parental supervision.
The finished product was adorable! We put it right in my son’s pocket and it was his buddy all day long!
