Dr. Seuss {Inspired} Food & Snack Ideas

Pin It
It's Dr. Seuss' birthday! 
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

This week we have been reading lots of Dr. Seuss books and enjoying all kinds of fun activities.  It was fun for me to try to incorporate the books into some of our lunches and snacks.



Here are a few of the things I made for the Lil Divas this week:

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish Lunch

What's In It:
Tuna fish sandwich on fish shaped wheat bread
rainbow goldfish crackers
One Fish, Two Fish Jello (blue raspberry jello w/swedish goldfish inside)
Pink Yink Ink Drink - (Shh, actually it's just pink lemonade)

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back Fruit Kabobs

What's In It:
strawberries & bananas make up the hat & the head is a grape

Yes, that's it! Cute, easy, yummy & healthy = win, win, win, win!

The Lorax Sandwich & Truffula Trees

What's In It:
PB & J Sandwich - eyes are raisins, mustache & mouth made of apple slices.
Truffula Trees are twizzlers w/cotton candy tops

These are some Seuss Snack ideas we did last year -

Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast


What's In It:
scrambled eggs & ham w/a hint of green food color
bagels - the melted butter has a hint of green food color too


Green Eggs & Ham Dessert

  6. Thanks for the ideas Bern! I'm doing the Cat in the Hat Fruit Kabobs later today for my sons and the goldfish sandwich too. I don't have any gel/coloring to make the faces, so I'm goimg to improvise. Thanks again!
