Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!

As soon as my girls got in the car yesterday when I picked them up from school, they reminded me that it's Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2nd. How could I let this opportunity for some fun pass? So we had green eggs and ham!! The kids were a little skeptical at first, but once they saw how I made the eggs green, they were ok with it. Food coloring is not scary at all.

They don't look green on the picture...but they were!
I remembered that I have a fish cookie cutter, so we recreated the classic One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, Dr. Seuss book. We had a lot of fun decorating.

When we were done decorating, we watched The Cat in The Hat, which I'm not a big fan of the "Hollywood" version of that, but my kids love it, so I endured through it. What a great time they had, we may have to do a character or book themed night more often.


  1. what a great idea!! I should do thing like that with my girls...I am sure Nya would love some green eggs!! Next year I will for sure do something!! Love it!
