What child doesn’t grow up with Dr. Seuss's books? We have quite a few of them lying around the house. The kids love the silly characters rhymes. Dr. Seuss-inspired recipes that I’m share with been hit in my house. Of course, the famous green eggs and ham are included, but they're few other snack and meal ideas. Create a fun Dr. Seuss-inspired afternoon with these recipes and don’t forget to read of the books kids. (If you don’t own any, enjoy to your local library.)
Green Eggs and Ham
This has to be the most famous Dr. Seuss-inspired dish. Scramble eggs, add drops of blue to the mixture and cook . You can serve a warmed-up slice of ham with it, and if you want to go all out, brush the ham with a little green food coloring.
My kids love either biscuits or mashed potatoes with this dish. Add (either green or a complimentary color like red) to the biscuit dough or the finished mashed potatoes for even more fun.
Cat in The Hat Snack
Make the Cat’s Hat for a fun snack. All few Ritz crackers, gummy lifesavers (preferably in white/clear and red), and vanilla frosting. Put the Ritz cracker on a plate. Use vanilla frosting lifesaver to the cracker. “Glue” more lifesavers on top of one alternating between red and white.
These snacks are so cute; want of your child’s creation before devoured.
This snack was inspired by “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish”. Prepare several different colors of Jello package directions and pour each flavor into a shallow pan. Use a fish-shaped cookie cutter to cut the Jello into fish shapes. (If you don’t have a fish-shaped also just cut fish shapes with a knife.) also add small pieces of fruit to the Jello mixture before it cools. This is sneak serving of fruit into your child’s diet.
Pink Ink for The Yink
The Yink in “One Fish, Two Fish” drink pink ink. Make your own version by combining strawberries (either fresh or frozen and thawed) milk blender. Add a few drops of red food coloring if the “ink” isn’t pink enough.
A Fruity Hat For The Cat
How about this for a fun Sunday breakfast? Whip up a batch of silver dollar pancakes and some fresh strawberries. Grab some whipped cream and let the kids assemble the Cat’s hat by stacking pancakes, and strawberries on top of each other using the whipped cream as “glue”.
Enjoy a few of these Dr. Seuss-inspired snacks and meals with your family, or invite a few neighbor kids over for a Dr. Seuss party. Either way, of fun and bring the Seuss stories to life.
