Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!



Happy 108th Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

We love Dr. Seuss at our house and to celebrate his birthday I wanted to incorporate our favorite books, well, and the upcoming movie ;)

The Cat in the Hat



This sandwich is a Dr. Seuss inspired inside out ham and cheese sandwich. The filling is on top and the top of the sandwich on the bottom. I filled it with cream cheese so my kids can eat it as is :) The Cat in the Hat hat is made with American cheese and ham slices and there is also Goldfish crackers on a Fig Newton to represent Red Fish, Blue fish. Green Eggs and Ham is a piece of cheese with a cucumber egg yolk that I colored in with food coloring. The green egg is resting on turkey mini pepperonis since the kids prefer that to ham :)



And this Cat in the Hat inspired lunch is a round Nutella sandwich decorated with cheese eyes and food markers. The hat is made out of a Gala apple and I removed the peel to create the red and white stripes. The bow is also made out of the other half of the apple. On the side is a Fig Newton with two Goldfish crackers to represent red fish, blue fish and the grapes and apple were my sons idea. He thought it looked Dr. Seuss-ish ;)


One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish



The one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish lunch is a half a peanutbutter sandwich decorated with Goldfish crackers and food coloring to resemble the book cover. I also added a Fig Newtown with the letters READ stencil out of fruit strips and popcorn. I originally posted this lunch on Wednesday for Read Across America :)


and of course The Lorax


My two older kids wanted to have a Lorax lunch. The Lorax sandwich is cut and shaped out of bread, and the eyes are cheese and food coloring. I added the Lorax trees made out of carrot shavings and celery and all Dr. Seuss lunches need the red and white stripes so I made little cherry tomato and cheese picks. :)

Have a great Read Across America and Dr. Seuss Birthday - Day!

And now hop over to Shannon's blog and check out what she did for Dr. Seuss Day :)
