Looking for a fun way to celebrate Read Across America Day? Then you’ll love these free printable Dr Seuss hats that featuring The Lorax, Thing 1 & Thing 2, and Horton from Horton Hears A Who.
On March 2nd, kids across the United States will celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and National Read Across America Day.
I love how schools get young kids excited about reading by doing fun activities and having a party for Dr. Seuss. It brings the same excitement for birthday parties and merges it with literacy and learning.
To go along with that spirit, I created these free printable Dr. Seuss headbands to go along with the celebration! They’re another addition to our Dr. Suess crafts for kids!

The goal when I created these Dr. Seuss character headbands was simply to bring a smile to kids’ faces and have them become passionate about reading (or being read to!).
My son began learning how to read just a short while ago, and it’s amazing seeing the transformation that it brings to his life.
He reads books all the time, he can’t wait to go to the library and now we can’t spell d-e-s-s-e-r-t in our house because he knows what we’re talking about!
I hope these hats also bring excitement for reading into your home or classroom.
And come on, just look at how cute the Lorax is. What kid wouldn’t want to wear that headband?!
Dr. Seuss Template Notes
Inside the free printable template, we’ve included two options.
Originally, we only had the full-color versions available. We imagined parents and teachers would simply print them out, cut and assemble so the kids could wear them on Dr. Seuss Day.
But, as time went on we received more and more requests to have them in black and white. That wasn’t something we thought of, but it was a great idea!
Now, we have a black and white version as well so kids can color in the headbands and you can save your ink.
Whichever way you decide to print them out, we’re sure the kids will love them. Don’t forget to enter your email in the form at the end of this page to get your free copy!
