Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss PicCollages!

After seeing this super fun idea on Mrs. Goodwin's awesome Instagram account, I decided we needed to try this project in kindergarten this morning! It turned out to be really fun and pretty simple, if you're familiar with the easy to use, FREE, and amazing app PicCollage Kids. Students took a selfie, then used this awesome drawing hack discovered by Erintegration to draw on top of the photo and add a cat nose, whiskers and Cat in the Hat style hat. They customized their collages with fun backgrounds, fancy text (we all wrote "Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!", but older students could write their favorite stories or characters) and birthday stickers (I let them choose 2). The collages are easily saved to the iPad camera roll and shared on Seesaw! Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!

  1. Cute idea! You could print these using iron on transfer paper. Then make your own designed Dr. Seuss shirts. We did something like this only not as individualistic as this. Then put them on shirts for Dr. Suess day. They turned out super cute and all the kids felt like they were part of dressing up.
