Dr. Seuss Day may have been a few weeks ago, but when you have small children this special day could be celebrate any time during the year!
I always tend to find out about fun days like Dr. Seuss Day way late, which give me little to no time to prepare! Luckily, I found a couple of easy ways to celebrate and since they take little to no time at all to make, I could still put together a little fun for Emily! #MomWin
Plus, let’s all remember that children probably don’t know that Dr. Seuss Day was March 2nd and on the off-chance they do, what child doesn’t love Dr. Seuss and these fun themed meals? These ideas would be fun year-round for little ones, don’t you think?
Cat In the Hat Treats (pictured above)
Emily loves Cat In The Hat! How about your children? Isn’t this a fun and easy idea for snack time? All you have to do is slice a banana and some strawberries and put them on a cake pop stick to look like the cat’s hat. It’s the perfect snack after watching a Cat In The Hat episode or reading the book to keep the Dr. Seuss fun going!
Green Eggs & Ham
This one’s super easy and even though the eggs aren’t entirely green, I wanted to find a healthy way to make them green without using food dye. Simply chop some fresh spinach, about 1/4 cup, and whisk into 2 eggs in a small bowl. Scramble as usual and serve with a side of ham. I just used Boarshead deli meat, but you could use any type of ham you want. Double the recipe to make for both mama and child. This is a favorite of mine for an easy breakfast, lunch or even dinner! Add some toast or roasted potatoes for a more filling meal.
One Fish Two Fish
I try to limit snacks like Goldfish crackers because Emily always wants to eat half the bag in one sitting, but there are always exceptions to the rules 🙂
When I do buy them, I prefer the whole grain cheddar flavor. Either these or the colored Goldfish go hand in hand with One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Not only are they a quick and easy snack for parents, but you can work on learning colors and counting the fish, just like the book. Emily’s always happy when Goldfish crackers are part of snack time and I’m sure your children are too!
I hope you like some of these fun food ideas, which go hand in hand with Dr. Seuss. Like I mentioned earlier, even though Dr. Seuss Day has come and gone, children love these books and would probably enjoy these snacks any day of the year. At least I think so and I know Emily agrees!
