FREE Dr. Seuss Template Download

I’ve made a blank hat template and posted it HERE to help celebrate Dr. Seuss’ upcoming birthday. I once used it as an art history lesson by reviewing a couple of famous artists (Matisse, Picasso, Van Gogh, etc.) and then asking students to create a hat in their style. I’m sure there are other possibilities, I’d love to hear about them if you have a chance to share.

Love this! This is EXACTLY what I needed for next week! We are putting on an Art Show and reading "The Dot" AND it's Dr. Suess celebration time. I can't wait to share this with my firsties! Thanks again!

This is a great idea for Dr. Seuss week. We will try it also in my first grade class!

This is a great idea! It would work awesome for a sub too. I am out for 4-5 weeks with a broken leg and trying to find interesting things for the kids to do that still involve learning but are easy for the non-art sub! check out my blog smartypantsjohnston.blogspot.com

We did this on the day before Dr Seuss's birthday. THANK YOU! it was really fun! We first practiced in the forms of Jasper Johns, Henri Matisse, and Joan Miro. They really got into it!! What a fun idea.

I've spent an hour on the web looking for a Cat in the Hat image that I remembered using last year with my classes on Read Across America Day. We turned it into a Mondrian for 1st grade, Picasso for 3rd grade, Haring for 4th and Dine for 5th. I did not remember that I got the idea from you but after finally locating the download, I am sure that I did. Loved the way this project went and will repeat in this year. I've always found such wonderful ideas on your site.
