Dr. Seuss Birthday Snacks

Creative Wednesdays

Dr. Seuss’ birthday is March 2nd and it is a part of National Read Across America week. Add a special touch to the day by making an edible red and white striped hat as seen in the infamous children’s book The Cat in the Hat and some green eggs from Green Eggs and Ham.

Don’t think you’ll like them? Try them! Try them! And you may!

Edible Hat from Cat in the Hat

You Will Need:

  • Round Cracker
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas

What to Do:

Slice strawberries and bananas into equal sized slices. Arrange the strawberries and banana slices on top of the cracker to resemble a striped hat.

Pretend Green Eggs

You Will Need:

  • Marshmallows
  • Green M&M’s

What to Do:
1. Smash up your marshmallow. You’ll want to flatten them as much as possible while still leaving some fluff.

2. Stick a green M&M smack dab in the middle of your marshmallow. It should stick simply from the exposed gelatin of the marshmallow.

3. Serve with a side of silliness. Only let the kids eat the “eggs” in the dark, in a box, or with their favorite stuffed fox!
