Free printables + activities that help grow kids’ hearts 3 sizes this Grinch-mas

Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. We read that line in Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas every year, but it can sometimes be difficult to drive home the message with kids who are a bit more focused on their shiny, wrapped presents. (Not that we blame them entirely.)

It’s Dr Seuss’s birthday! Put a candle in those green eggs and ham

Though my sleep-addled brain may never forgive him for Fox in Socks, that tongue-twister of a story my son requested night after night, there is no question that Dr. Seuss’ collection of fanciful stories include some of our very favorite characters and verse. In honor of Dr. Seuss’ 107th birthday, we’ve pulled together some of our very favorite items for those of us who can’t get enough of those magical, Seussical creations. –Christina It’s all about the books, isn’t it, which is why I especially love The Retro Baby’s Cat in the Hat tee (above) which has that classic...

The grinch gets greener

Watching The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is a holiday tradition around here and I can only imagine how well this greener version of the grouchy Grinch himself would go over peeking out of my kid’s stocking. Now I realize that technically speaking, Dr. Seuss’s beloved holiday character is already green.

His fur is made from completely natural, unbleached cotton and colored using low impact dyes...

Dr. Seuss chuck taylors – We do like them Sam I am

I didn’t think it was possible to love Converse sneakers any more that I already do until I stumbled upon their new line of Dr. Seuss shoes and–surprise!–my obsession continues. Now, I don’t think I could get away with the adult versions, though my 20-year old inner hipster begs to differ. However, the kids’ Dr. Seuss shoes are ridiculously cute. Take the awesome “Thing 1” high tops or if you prefer, the low tops (at right) that feature Thing’s little mug on the ultra cool double tongue. I also really like the Cat in the Hat inspired chucks, which...
