Dr. Seuss Silly Birthday Celebration at the Mississippi Children's Museum

Posted: Updated:
Wrap up Read Across America Week in Dr. Seuss style at the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM)! Dr. Seuss’ famous and infamous characters will be joining MCM for a day of play and celebration on Saturday, March 1 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. for the museum’s 4th annual Dr. Seuss’ Silly Birthday Celebration.  All activities are free with paid admission to the museum which is $8 for adults and children over 1 year old. 

“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere,” said Dr. Seuss, and MCM will have lots of fun and funny things to do throughout the museum. Visitors will be able to participate in ooey, gooey oobleck experiments, green eggs and ham cooking demonstrations, Green Eggs and Ham yoga, Dr. Seuss story times, Wocket in my Pocket scavenger hunt and more fling-flang fun! The museum is encouraging visitors to compete for the best Lorax moustache at 12:30. The finalist will win a prize full of Seuss silliness!

Download your copy of the Lorax moustache template here. Make a lesson of The Lorax by reading it aloud with your children, discussing ways they can keep the earth beautiful (plant a tree, recycle, conserve energy and water, etc.) and encourage them to get involved and speak up about the environment, like the Lorax.
