Dr. Seuss Birthday

We had a fun Dr. Seuss Day on Dr. Seuss's Birthday (March 2nd).  You could also do this for St. Patrick's Day, or just any day you want to share some good stories and fun with your kids.
We started out by reading a few of our favorite Dr. Seuss Books.  We had a few and also checked out a few from the library.


After our story time we colored some pictures I got off the internet.  I just googled Dr. Seuss coloring pages and found lots.

 Aren't they cute!

The finished product

Then we watched the movie that we found at the Library.  It actually had a few stories.

We made snacks to go with our lunch.  Pretzel sticks with a little bit of melted white chocolate chips.  I just put about a 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips in a sandwich baggie.  I melted them for a few minutes in the microwave, making sure I stopped every 20-30 seconds and squished the bag a little.  Then I just snipped a little off of a corner of the bag and squeezed the chocolate onto the pretzels.  Then we topped them off with a green M&M's and put in the fridge til the hardened.
Then we enjoyed our lunch of green eggs and ham with our little snacks we made.  For the Green Eggs and Ham, I just made scrambled eggs with a little diced ham in them.  I also added a little bit of green food coloring, milk, salt and pepper.

We had a lot of fun.

Dr. Seuss Day was a success.  Here are the smile on my kids (all decked out in their greens) to prove it.
