Wacky Wednesday

I was almost going to make Wednesday's theme Who Wednesday for Horton Hears a Who because that is such a good, heart warming story. However, my kids are still very young and are going to get a kick out of waking up to a Wacky House! If you have read Wacky Wednesday, you know things are backwards, upside down and all mixed up. There's even a tree growing out of a toilet. Prepare to get silly!


Some things you can do at home are turn the clocks and pictures upside down; Hang a shoe on the wall; Extra points if you have one with wings from the ceiling! Did you notice the umbrella in the pot from the story? Just make things as silly and mixed up as possible. Have the kids run around and count all the wacky things!


If you don't have the book, a read aloud is included below, and you if you want to purchase the book from Amazon click here.




Dress Up: Mix and Match your Clothes.

Let your kids pick out their own silly clothes. They can wear mismatched clothes with some inside out and backwards, and all different colors. Have fun with some silly hairstyles and let your imagination roam free.


Treat: Dessert for Breakfast - Breakfast Popsicles

So, this is kind of a tricky thing I do because the kids think they are getting something they would usually have as a treat but its just fruit and yogurt that I would give them for breakfast anyway- but in frozen form. Either way, they love it! I call them breakfast popsicles - just because I let the kids have them in the morning. I usually only do it in the summer. But a cold treat in the winter for breakfast seems just silly enough for Wacky Wednesday.


Normally, my go-to for breakfast popsicles is my acai kiwi concoction, but I will save that for summer. A great idea for Dr. Seuss week is to create a layered look like the famous Cat's Hat. For this, all you have to do is layer macerated organic strawberries and some low sugar organic vanilla yogurt into a popsicle mold. Freeze over night if possible. If you don't have a mold, click here. A plastic cup with a popsicle stick would also work.





Craft: Create a silly monster.

Wacky Wednesday is all about being creative and silly. For this don't give your kids any preconceived notions about what it should look like. So often kids get instructions on how to create art. Today, give them a paper plate for a face, a variety of materials and let them go wild. These are my family's creations.





HAVE A WACKY WEDNESDAY!
