We had such a good time tonight celebrating Read Across America Day. I thought I'd share a few photos from our Seuss extravaganza.
First we gathered and conquered our entire Dr. Seuss collection, with the exception of Dr. Seuss's ABC which has mysteriously gone by the wayside. Here's what we did read.
While we read we enjoyed an afternoon snack of Cat in the Hat cheese and fruit leather hats. Salami would have worked as well as fruit leather and might have made for a tastier combination, but I didn't have any on hand.
Aren't they cute?! I traced the hat from the cover of one of our books and used the template to cut out cheese and fruit leather. The kids loved them!
And of course we needed One Fish Two Fish Red Fish...but sadly no blue fish.
And for dinner, the much anticipated Green Eggs and Ham!
Since Roo is allergic to eggs, he enjoyed green ham and peas instead :)
Kind of terrifying but he liked it. Last but not least, we topped off the night with this awesome idea for Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes that I discovered on another amazing all Seuss all the time blog: www.obSEUSSed.com. Looly, Bean, and Roo had a blast piling on the cotton candy.
