Seussical Celebration

We had so much fun celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2nd. We enjoyed reading several Dr. Seuss' books throughout the day. This really wasn't that unusual...Jake loves Dr. Seuss and often picks these books to read.

We made a Cat in the Hat hat for Jake to wear.I got the idea from this link and then added a few things. One side of the hat Jake painted red stripes and the other side he cut red stripes from paper and glued.

 We then turned to science as we used spinach to turn eggs green. Jake thought it was so funny we were putting "salad" (what he calls all lettuce) in the blender with the eggs. We kept adding handfuls until the eggs were the color we wanted them to be.

And enjoyed a delicious lunch of green eggs and ham with Cat in the Hat toast.
The green eggs & ham were eggs blended with spinach and milk then mixed with diced ham and mozzarella cheese. Pour into a casserole dish and bake. The toast was made striped with butter & strawberry jelly.

Of course a birthday wouldn't be a birthday without a yummy dessert. I took Jake to the Publix bakery where he chose a huge chocolate chip m & m cookie.

Did you do anything to celebrate Dr. Seuss?
