10 Easy Dr. Seuss Snacks

10 Easy Dr. Seuss Snacks

Here are ten quick and easy snacks that you likely already eat all of the time. Now you can make mealtime more fun by giving your foods Seuss names and linking them to different Dr. Seuss books. Making these snacks and reading the books is sure to be a hit with your kids!

10 EASY DR. SEUSS SNACKS
(Click on book images to enlarge them.)

Book: Green Eggs and Ham
2011-03-02 Splendiferous Seuss Breakfast IMGP9780 txt
1. Snack – Green Eggs and Ham: This popular dish is easy to make. Just add green food coloring to your eggs and ham (you can brush it onto the ham but best results come from soaking it in green colored water). There are so many options with the eggs, scrambled would be the easiest but you can also try fried, deviled eggs, or egg salad. For healthier green options try adding green foods like spinach or pesto to the eggs instead of food coloring.

Book: Oh Say Can You Say and
The Butter Battle Book

seusssnacks03 IMGP3831
2. Snack – Bread and Butter: Oh Say Can You Say has a tongue-twister about Bed Spreaders and Bread Spreaders while the The Butter Battle Book is all about whether you like your bread butter side up or butter side down. Eat your bread/toast and butter with your green eggs and ham!

Book: Ten Apples Up On Top!
3. Snack – Red Apples: Yep, that’s it 😉

Book: Yertle the Turtle
seusssnacks04 IMGP3863
4. Snack – Blueberries: Yertle the Turtle says, “I’m king of a blueberry bush and a cat!”…so try some of Yertle’s blueberries 🙂

Book: Hop on Pop
seusssnacks05 IMGP3817txt
5. Snack – Eat a snack with Brown and Black: The snack that Brown in Black are pictured eating is sandwiches, green apples, bananas, and glasses of milk or water, there also appears to be a bowl of sausage links or hot dogs.

Book: Fox in Socks
seusssnacks06 IMGP3824
6. Snack – Cheese Trees: Cheese sticks will work as cheese trees. You could put cheese cubes on toothpicks and stick them in Styrofoam to make a “forest” of cheese trees.
seusssnacks07 IMGP3826
7. Snack – Blue Goo: Blue jello can be Blue Goo. You could also color other gooey foods blue such as yogurt, pudding, or even mashed potatoes.
seusssnacks08 IMGP3841
8. Snack – Poodles eating noodles: Any noodles will do…macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, etc. Bonus points if you have a stuffed poodle that can sit on the table as you eat or print pictures of poodles to color while eating.

Book: Oh the Thinks You Can Think
seusssnacks09 IMGP3820
9. Snack – Schlopp (with a cherry on top): I’ve seen some more “complicated” recipes for Schlopp online, but the easiest way to make Schlopp is simply to stick a cherry on top of ice cream, pudding, or yogurt.

Book: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
seusssnacks10 IMGP3851
10. Snack – Fish shaped snacks:
Gummy fish or Goldfish crackers
Make red and blue jello and use a fish-shaped cookie cutter. Or make blue jello and add different colored gummy fish to it before it sets…now you have fish in water!
Cut up different colored fruits and veggies and then display them in the shape of a fish.

And as a bonus…

SEUSS BEVERAGES

Book: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
seusssnacks11 IMGP3821
11. Yink’s Pink Ink Drink: Any pink drink will do from something simple like pink lemonade or strawberry milk to more involved things like strawberry milkshakes or smoothies. Milk would have the most ink-like consistency while the lemonade would look more like the illustration in the book.

Book: Sleep Book
seusssnacks12 IMGP3840
12. Moose Juice (Orange) and Goose Juice (Green): Moose Juice is orange and Goose Juice is green, so any orange/green beverage will do (Kool-Aid, soda, tinted drinks), or you could simply serve orange juice with your green eggs and ham and call it Moose Juice!

SEUSS DINNERS

Book: The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
seusssnacks13 IMGP3842
13. Who Roast Beast: Having roast for dinner? Call it Who Roast Beast. Maybe serve it with some blue “Blue Goo” mashed potatoes 😉

Book: Oh Say Can You Say
seusssnacks14 IMGP3835
14. Potato chips and pork chops: If you’re having pork chops for dinner, add some chips just they way they serve them at Skipper Zipp’s Clipper Ship Chip Chop Shop.

31DBBB Day 2: Write a List Post


*I’m joining The SITS Girls in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog challenge (31DBBB).*

Day 2: Write a List Post

Today’s challenge is to write a list post. I actually wrote a list post for Day 1 of the 31DBBB Challenge about my Elevator Pitch. I’ve written many other list posts before so I’ve included all of the links below for your convenience.

For today’s post I asked my hubby, “What should I write my list post about…it’s so broad it could be about anything and I don’t have any focus or inspiration right now.” And he answers with a grin, “Write about me!”. So I did 😉 I wanted him to get his own post instead of me squeezing it in here with all of this nonsense, so to read today’s list post go here:
15 Reasons Why My Hubby is Awesome

Here is a list of all of my list posts 😉

Top 10 Posts of 2010


It’s 2011 and so my first “year” of blogging has come to an end.
(I started the blog in August…so it hasn’t been a full year yet)
On Christmas Eve my blog reached a total of 10,000 hits…woohoo!

Here are my Top 10 Most Popular Posts of 2010:

10. Dear Santa: Part 2 Mailing a Letter to Santa
9. 10 Ways to Shake Up Your Christmas Pajamas Tradition
8. Dear Santa: Part 1 Writing a letter to Santa
7. Free Phone Calls from Santa Claus
6. Open House: Storage
5. Dear Santa: Part 3 Paper for Writing a Letter to Santa
4. Open House: Master Bedroom
3. Open House: Laundry Room
2. Open House: Adaline’s Nursery
1. Adaline’s 1st Birthday Party – Pink and Green Polka Dots and Cupcakes

The Dear Santa posts did rather well…and I never even got around to finishing the series (bad, Jenn…bad!). I guess this just means I’ll have some material for a new Dear Santa series in 2011. Adaline’s birthday party was the whole reason why I started the blog and no other post has been able to touch it in terms of hits. I wonder if her 2nd birthday party in August will give it a run for its money. Only 8 more months until we find out 😉

I’ve included some “bonus” posts because my Open House series was only popular because I linked up to the 4 Moms, otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten so much traffic. So here are the next 4 most popular posts (and another bonus since one of them included my SITS feature day post).

10. Uncle Ugly’s Christmas Sweater Jamboree
9. My letter to Santa 1984
8. Celebrating 30 years in 30 days
7. Dear Santa: Part 4 Emailing a Letter to Santa
6. SITStah’s…Stop here first!

Hopefully in 2011 my Top Ten will include some real posts instead of just “here’s some pictures of my house”. We’ll see.
Next week I’ll post my Top Ten Least Popular Posts because, well, everyone wants to read something that no one else bothered to read, right?! Maybe not.

What was your favorite Coolest Family on the Block blog post this year?
Let me know in the comments 🙂

Have a Happy New Year!

Don’t forget to vote for Adaline in the Spooked by Santa Photo Contest everyday until 01/09/2011! Thanks!
