Fiesta Friday - Octopus Party Ideas + Read Across America/The Lorax Fiestas

It's Octopus Week at the Seattle Aquarium so I thought, what would be more fitting than to share a few themed party ideas over on Today's Mama - Seattle Mamas, like these super cute cupcakes from FamilyFun.

Speaking of family fun, next Friday is March 2 and Read Across America, a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually  in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday. Thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books.

Check out the Seussville site for Read Across America activities happening all week long. And this year is extra special with the same day release of  The Lorax Movie so of course I had to share some fun parties and crafts from around the web.
