Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

I try to be crafty but I would like to give all the credit to the wonderful world of Pinterest for the following post. Because, lets be honest, I wouldn't make anything themed or decorative without it.

p.s. do you follow me on pinterest? I have all kinds of crazy ideas on there. My goal is to cook/complete/try out at least 1% of them in my lifetime ;)

Back on track, my sorority's philanthropy in college was literacy so we always celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday in  big way and I love sharing that with my kids! Amelia's favorite book is Green Eggs and Ham. She is even starting to read some of it herself! Ok, mostly "Sam I Am" and "I do not like green eggs and ham" out of memerization but she is getting there!

And lucky me, I am in charge of healthy snack at preschool today so I had to go really crazy ;) Ok pinterest went crazy, but I'd like to think my snacks didn't turn into complete pinterest flops

 Cat in the Hat themed mini "skewers", with the sharp ends cut off, of mozzerella cheese and cherry tomatoes. I would have totally done strawberries and bananas but there's a strawberry allergy in the class so no strawberries, but another idea if you're looking for one!
Green eggs and ham candies in individual bags for the kids to take home of pretzels, white chocolate wafers and green M&m's. Super easy. Great for color sorting too! The twins (mostly Amelia) helped me pick all the green ones out, for a small incentive of eating all the "broken" candies. They had fun helping me with this snack!

And of course, breakfast can't be complete with green eggs and ham! No food coloring in our house though so I blended the eggs with some spinach and added a splash of milk. Ben and Amelia gobbled them up. Jack is more of a ham kid.

The kids have Dr. Seuss themed class activities all week so I'm excited to see what they come home with! And Ben and I will spend some extra time reading this week in honor of Mr. Seuss.

Happy Monday everyone!
