Do you like green eggs and ham?

Would you like them in a house?
Would you like them with a mouse?

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

I am so excited to celebrate Read Across America Day tomorrow!  Here is a sneak peek at what I've got planned.  Shhhh, don't tell the kids! {wink}

Monkey is taking green "eggs" for her class snack tomorrow.  Six of them are part blue and part green jell-o.  It took too long doing multi-colored eggs so the rest are all green.  Monkey is VERY excited to eat green eggs!  She told me over and over that she will eat them in a house, and with a mouse, and she does like green eggs!  (Can you guess what her favorite bedtime story is?)

Green Eggs and Ham Jello Eggs

Lil Bean gets orange eggs and red Sneech belly stars.  I hope the orange and red are more appealing to the 1 and 2 year old crowd.  

Jello Eggs and Stars

This is the mold I made the eggs with.  I need to order another one or two!  They can be purchased at the Kraft Store for only $3.50!

My kiddos at school will be getting flat jell-o jiggler eggs.  I wanted to make them the 3D version, but with one mold it wasn't happenin'.  They'll be so excited to have a surprise snack!

Dr. Seuss Day wouldn't be complete without Thing 1 and Thing 2!  These are the shirts Monkey and Bean will wear tomorrow.  Amanda and I made them for Halloween (knowing full well they would be worn again on March 2!)  They are silk-screened thanks to a tutorial at Modge Podge Rocks.  And of course the girls will be wearing crazy socks.  Its Dr. Seuss Day, I mean come on.  

And here's my shirt.  Amanda and I were Thing 1 and Thing 2 for our school Halloween Parade.  I dug out the headband we made (if only I knew where the girls' made it off to...) and whipped up a fun tulle and bead bracelet.  I think the google search to find the right bracelet idea took longer than actually making it! I found a great tutorial here.  I made one for Amanda too.  I'll surprise her with it in the morning! {giggle}

I hope you have something special planned for Read Across America!  Remember:

"You're never too old, 
Too wacky, too wild,
To pick up a book,
And read to a child."

Here is a picture of Amanda and I in our shirts!  Dr. Seuss Day was a great success!  The little kids weren't so sure about the jell-o eggs, but my class loved the surprise!

  1. EEEK! A surprise bracelet for me??? Thanks Katie! See you in the morning and save a green egg for me!

  2. These look delicious! Okay, once I looked and read that they were jello, I decided they looked delicious, lol. And I love Jello Jigglers!! The Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts and jewelry are a fun touch. I hope you had a great day :-) ~Lori
