What’s in your pocket? Is it a locket, a socket, or could it even be a Wocket?

One of our favorite Dr. Seuss stories is There’s A Wocket in My Pocket. In true Seuss form the story combines real words with made up words in fun rhymes. We love to look through the book and find all the silly creatures hidden throughout the illustrations. After reading the book, we decided to create our very own Wockets for our pockets. Below, you will find the instructions to bring some Wocket fun into your home.
