You might not be a cat, but you can create your own hat! During a celebration of Dr. Seuss on Wednesday, March 9 at 1 p.m., children can make a felt hat similar to the one featured in the famous story, The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss. Participants can also play One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by guessing the number of fish in a jar. The closest guess will win a Dr. Seuss tote bag filled with prizes. In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, cake will also be served while supplies last.
