Thing 1 and Thing 2 Straws

Dr. Seuss' birthday is this Sunday March 2nd and to celebrate I made these Thing 1, Thing 2, and Miss Thing straws for my kids. I've created a printable that also includes Thing 3, Thing 4 and a blank so you can fill in your own number :)

They are really simple to put together!

First you need to print out the two templates. One template is for the front and one is for the back. The hair is reversed on the back so when you sandwich them together, it will match up.

HERE is printable 1
HERE is printable 2

You can use any straw you wish but I love these red and white striped paper straws (from Michaels) that kinda look like the Cat-in-the-Hat.

Glue the two papers together on one edge, insert straw (add a little glue to secure straw in place) and glue the rest of the paper together. I used a hot glue gun for quick sticking and drying but any glue would work.

Now your little "Things" are ready to drink! Here are my Thing 1 and Thing 2 and little Miss Thing who is still too young to have a sip :)
