Play a Yertle the Turtle Stacking Game
Inspired by Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss, this goofy activity requires a steady hand and a good sense of balance. In the story, greedy Yertle makes a stack of turtles for a throne, but in the end he stacks too many and they all come toppling down. Celebrate this classic kids' tale by challenging your preschooler to follow Yertle's lead and create her own stack of walnut shell turtles.
