With doctor Seuss’s birthday coming up I thought I could make this adorable thing 1 thing 2 crafts for kids. As a millennial, I am a huge fan of Theodor Seuss Geisel. Growing up I loved his cartoons. Every single character is so fascinating.
I had more than just one idea for thing 1 and thing 2 crafts. Today I will be sharing two easy crafts using free printable templates. The first tutorial is How To Make Thing 1 Thing 2 Handprint Kids Craft. The second tutorial is How To Make Thing 1 Thing 2 Bookmarks. At the end of the tutorial, I will be sharing some fun facts about these two characters by Doctor Seuss.

How To Make Thing One Thing 2 Craft Step by Step Instructions:
Step 1: Thing 1 and Thing 2 Craft Template
I have added a handprint template just in case you need it.
If you are doing this craft with your toddler place their hand on a white blank paper, and trace the hand shape using a pencil.
Cut out the handprint along the outline. Then, trace the shape on blue craft paper. Cut it out.
Cut out the rest of the pieces to make your thing 1 and thing 2 preschool craft using the PDF templates.
Use a black marker to write “thing 1” on the circular white craft paper.
Step 2: Glue The Head.
Glue the thing one head on the palm of the handprint cut out.
Step 3: Glue The Body.
Take the red rectangular body and glue it vertically below the head.
Step 4: Glue The Label
Glue the “thing one” label on the center of the red shirt.
Step 5: Draw The Face
Take a thin black marker pen or a gel pen. Draw the eyes, mouth, and nose.
Step 6: Make Thing Two
Similarly use the templates and handprint to make thing two. Just don’t forget to change the label.
And your handprint Thing 1 Thing 2 craft is ready.
