Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday, and this is the 3rd year that we celebrated it.  The kids and I made Thing 1 & 2 painted handprints yesterday.  This was a fun idea from!  Today was our super fun play date with our mom's group.  We met at the library.  I had a paper hat for each kid, a sticker, an award, and a bookmark.  For this I made Thing 1 & 2 mini cupcakes for the kids inspired by this post, and mini green eggs candy made out of candy melts for the kids to snack on.  We also had fish (colored goldfish), pink ink (pink lemonade, and pink yogurt)!  Because most of the kids are younger, and the story Cat in the Hat is long, I used another great idea from  I brought with 2 stuffed toy kittens and had the kids pass them around every time they heard the word cat.

For dinner tonight I made green eggs, ham, and Cat in the Hat stacked pancakes.  I dyed the scrambled eggs green, and divided the pancake batter in half, and dyed one half red.  I made the pancakes on the smaller side, and when they were done, stacked them alternating colors to look like the cat's hat.

The books we read:
Cat in the Hat
Mr. Brown can Moo. Can you?
There's a wocket in my pocket (board book)
and started to read One Fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish, but the kids had had enough.  There is always next year!

Those hand print Thing 1 & Thing 2's looks fantastic. I love making those crafts with my daughter. We just made some thumbprint leprechauns for St. Patrick's Day!
