Love Dr. Seuss? Excited for Read Across America? I’ve rounded up 35 of the most fun, most fantastic, most FUNtastic Fox in Socks activities for you Seussy celebration!
Read on for Fox in Socks crafts, games, worksheets, and hands-on activities!
With a last name like Fox, it’s no wonder Fox in Socks is a family favorite. Before kids, I was bringing the Foxy fun to my first and second graders for Read Across America.
I love that silly Fox and all the tounge twisting fun. But beware! If you are reading this book aloud, take it slow. It can be dangerous.
Not sure what I mean? Let’s just say, my inexperienced intern let a preposterous profanity slip out when she was reading about Luke’s Duck who likes to lick lakes.
Trust me. Practice the read aloud… or err on the side of caution and pick up the audiobook.

Chicks with Bricks and Blocks and Clocks
Clock scavenger hunt! Be on the lookout for clocks all day. When you see one, practice reading the time.
Whoever can tell the time correctly gets a Lego brick or wooden block. The person with the tallest block and clock stack wins!
Who Sews Sue’s Socks?
*Make it a keeper* Create your own sewing keepsake on Fox in Socks day by using the cards to spell your child’s name. Then hang the yarn banner in their room!
Gooey Gooey Blue Goo
This is fun sensory play for preschool and kindergartners. Have an older child? This is also a science experiment!
Make your own Blue Goo with a simple recipe:
Add 1c cornstarch to a large bowl
Slowly stir in water until you have a smooth goo
Add a few drops of blue food coloring at a time until you achieve the desired color
*Optional – add blue glitter (not for the feint of heart!)
Blue goo had a strange texture! It’s a solid and a liquid. Smush it, stir it, roll it around.
It has a funny “squeaky” feel. Don’t know what a squeak feels like? Try it out!
Bim & Ben and their Pig Band
Not enough pigs for a band? Create a simple coffee filter pig craft and tape it to your broom. Instant pig band! Pig craft instructions from Look We’re Learning.

1 Tip for Door Decorations
Are you decorating your doors for Read Across America week? It’s a much anticipated annual tradition in schools across the country. Did I say anticipated?
When I was teaching I dreaded decorating my door. I would put up my kids’ actual work while everyone else, it seemed, had Pinteresting works of art!
Ain’t nobody got time for that. I’m more interested in hands-on activities and play with my kids. Not for show.
All the Fox without the Work…
Classroom teachers, if you are looking for a way to avoid decorating your door, I hear you! Pick up a Seuss bulletin board kit this year, and you’ll be set for years to come!
