Dr. Seuss Inspired Fun

In this house, we love Dr. Seuss.  The combination of rhyming and silliness is simply irresistible.  So, a couple of days ago, we gathered up some of our favorite books and had some Dr. Seuss inspired fun!

THE CRAFT:  We started out by making some "Cat in the Hat" hats.  To make the hats:  

1)  Cut a circle out of the center of a paper plate.

2)  Tape the ends of two pieces of card stock together.  Then, have the kids color stripes onto the paper.

3)  Tape the ends of the paper together (to form a cylinder), and attach it to the paper plate with tape.

THE SNACK:  For a snack, we made these simple "green eggs" {from "Green Eggs and Ham"}.

To make the eggs:

1)  Melt white chocolate chips in a bowl.  (1-2 minutes in the microwave on 50% power)

2)  Use a squeeze bottle filled with white chocolate to make an "egg" shape onto a sheet of wax paper.

3)  Give the wax paper a gentle shake to smooth out the chocolate, add a green Smartie, and allow to cool completely.  (Special thanks to Little Warriors for the snack time inspiration.)

THE LUNCH:  For lunch we had "Grinch" juice (milk with green food coloring) and "One Fish Two Fish" Sandwiches.

We had a great day reading, crafting and eating.  Thank you, Dr.Seuss!  :-)
