Nearly 15 years after the death of the beloved Dr. Seuss this darling book was published. In October 2013 Dr. Seuss' wife uncovered a manuscript of a nearly complete, never-seen-before, What Pet Should I Get? Like every other Dr. Seuss lover we couldn't wait to get our hands on it!
Choosing a pet can be hard. Would you get a dog, cat, bird, fish or even a yent?

Activity #1...Paper Plate Birds Nest
Once again we cant get enough of activities that help develop fine motor skills. Your little one will love clipping these cute clothes pin birds to their nest. To make the birds just glue a feather to a clothes pin, cut out a nose and draw on little black eyes. To make their nest cut a paper plate it in half and paint it brown.
Activity #2...Handprint Fish Puppets
These puppets kept Gus busy for a while and for a 13 month old with a short attention span, that was a win in my book. Just trace your babes hand, add a wiggly eye and mouth, then glue those cute little fishy hands to popsicle sticks.
Activity #3...Pom Pom Cat
This little kitty was super easy to make. Arrange pom poms into a C, add pipe cleaner whiskers, ears and a nose. Glue it all on a piece of paper and you have a pretty cute cat!
Activity #4...Balloon Puppy
This balloon puppy can be your little ones new best friend! Just draw a face and ears on a balloon and tie it to a stick or string. There's no doubt that around our house if we got a chance to choose a new pet it would be a friend for the best dog in the world our Launchpad.
