Fun Dr. Seuss Birthday Party Ideas I painted and cut out over 20 truffula trees taller than me!  I also painted Thing 1 and Thing 2 charicatures to go over photographs of the Birthday Boys. Green Eggs and Ham were, of course, a must have on the buffet table! We had the children play ‘Pin the heart on the Grinch’ as we all know – his heart is two sizes too small! The party favour table – it wouldn’t be a Dr Seuss party if the Cat in the Hat weren’t in attendance! Thing 1 ready to have his cake and eat it too!  His twin brother, Thing 2, never remained very presentable as he was wont to pull off his hair! This party was a BLAST and I hope the photos and ideas have …
