Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Happy Read Across America Day and 
Early Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

We love Dr. Seuss and all have our own favorite books. I asked the kids what they would like for Dr. Seuss's Birthday for lunch this year and this is what they requested:

The Grinch from How The Grinch Stole Christmas:

We packed pretzels, green eggs made from chocolate and Unreal chocolate candies, red and white apples to represent The Cat in the Hat and a peanut butter sandwich covered with a dye-free spinach tortilla shaped like the Grinch with fruit leather details. My second grader also brought a yogurt and ice water.

Green Eggs and Ham from the book Green Eggs and Ham:

For my fifth grader, I packed Somersault Sunflower crackers topped with a green egg made from chocolate and an Unreal dye-free chocolate candy, green egg pita rounds filled with hummus and topped with a piece of cucumber and a green egg wrap (green dye-free tortilla, ham and eggs). He also packed ice water.

Max the dog from How the Grinch Stole Christmas:

I packed more Somersaults Sunflower seed crackers topped with a green egg and ham chocolate, apple slices and Max the dog with pretzel antlers and fruit leather details sitting on a cereal bar. My youngest son also packed ice water and yogurt.

Well, and when I asked my four year old she could not decided which was her favorite so we did a compelation of The Cat in the Hat, One Fish, Two Fish, The Lorax and Horton Hears a Who:

We packed our yumbox with a cereal bar topped with fruit leather spelling out "unless" form the Lorax, goldfish crackers representing One Fish, Two Fish topped with green eggs, there is also Thing 1 and Thing 2 taking a bath in vanilla pudding, carrot tartuffolo trees, a Horton holding the speck sandwich and the Cat in the Hat with apple slices.

And with that I am leaving you with one of my favorite quotes from Dr. Seuss:


  1. love all the lunches. They are all so cute, especially the Grinch
