Dr. Seuss Thing 1 and Thing 2 - Activities, Cupcakes, Crafts and More

Updated on February 28, 2013

Thing 1 and Thing 2 activities

While enjoying a family trip to Savannah, my husband and I stopped in a novelty shop along River Street and purchased Thing 1 and Thing 2 T-shirts.

We bought them for our 6 year old daughter - Gabby aka (Thing 1) and our 1 year old son Christian aka Thing 2.

Immediately after purchase, we changed our kids into the shirts so they could where them around town. We received so many compliments on how cute they looked.

I agree. The shirts are adorable (which is why we bought them) but there are plenty of other cute and down right funny Thing 1 and Thing 2 gifts and activities to enjoy.

Take a look and see!

Thing 1 and Thing 2 Cotton Candy Cupcakes - Don't want a mountain of icing on your cupcakes? Serve cotton candy Thing 1 and 2 cupcakes instead.

These Thing 1 and Thing 2 Cotton Cupcakes look like they are super easy to make. Of course you could make multiple variations of them. Since the cotton candy serves as the topping, I would use a light cake to offset the sugar - Angel food cake would probably be perfect.

We actually own this puzzle and I found it quite difficult to put together the first time through but I got the hang of it as my 4 year old began to help me along during subsequent times.

 

Thing 1 and Thing 2 Cakes - A Dr. Seuss Cake can't be beat. A Thing one and Thing two cake is even more of a special treat.

These cakes look too pretty to eat. I love the personalization of adding the names to the hats and tying in The Cat in the Hat's signature hat with Thing 1 and Thing 2's blue fuzzy hair.

      I've always enjoyed The Cat in the Hat, and Thing 1 and Thing 2. I had it read to me as a kid, and I read it to my boys when they were kids, and I'm looking forward to reading it to my grandson! The Thing 1 and Thing 2 cakes and cupcakes look really good!
