1. Begin by drawing the face and body of Thing 1 or 2 on your white cardstock.
2. Paint the body of your Thing 1 or 2 red with your watercolors.
3. Add big drops of blue liquid watercolor around the face of your Thing 1 or 2 and use your straw to blow the paint all over the top of the head to make that crazy Thing 1 and 2 blue hair. Continue adding drops and blowing the paint until you have the look you want. Let the watercolor paint dry completely.
4. Cut out a white cardstock circle. Write “Thing 1” or “Thing 2” on the circle and glue it onto your Dr. Seuss craft. Or if you are doing this as a classroom activity or display, you can have each student use a different number to show individuality.
