All ages are welcome, but please register in advance so we can reserve space for you. Some building ideas: If Dr. Seuss asked you to create something to put in one of his books what would you make? Creatures, places, vehicles, inventions? Use your imagination to build something really wild, wacky, and magical. Build something inspired from a Dr. Seuss book. Create something that you would like to see in a Dr. Seuss book.
