Ruff Draft: Green Eggs and Ham anyone? Free Printable Logos!

A little birdie reminded us that Dr. Seuss’ birthday is just around the corner…. March 2nd is his official birthday.  With St. Patty’s Day coming up as well, we thought it would be fun to put together some Dr. Seuss snacks that would be great for:  Dr. Seuss’ Birthday (March 2nd), St. Patty’s Day (March 17th), After-school snacks or even a Breakfast Birthday Celebration!

We also wanted to offer a FREE PRINTABLE  andersruff-try them try them in honor of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!!!  It’s one of my favorite quotes from Green Eggs & Ham:

“You do not like them, so you say?  Try them! Try them! And you may.”   (I used to refer to that book, when I needed to convince my kids to eat something they thought they didn’t like)

Stick these party logos on any new food, and I bet your kids will try it!!! :)

Striped Pattern Paper from our Birthday Collection

Craft Punch/Scissors/Tape

Ingredients for Snacks:

hard boiled eggs – shells removed

ham – cut into circles

small tomatoes – I used campari size tomatoes

fresh mozzarella cheese log – one large circle, several small circles to match size of small tomato

orange slices

apple slices

star fruit (it has an odd taste – you could always use a star cookie cutter and cut out some other fruit for the “starfish”)

swedish fish

So basically, I made three edible stacks from 3 of my favorite Dr. Seuss books!

First, I  lined my paper plate with the patterned paper from our Dr. Seuss Inspired Birthday Collection – such a simple touch that makes a bold statement!

Then, onto the Stacks!!!

Green Eggs & Ham Stack

green eggs & ham

Directions:

Using a large bowl, mix green food coloring and water – I used the green gel in the baking section… I put about a 1/4 teaspoon of it in the water

Add the hard boiled eggs and mix them around in the colored water until you desired coloring

Cut your ham into various circles – I used  cookie cutters

Add your pieces of ham to green colored water and  remove once you have desired coloring

Place hard boiled egg on ham stacks, and use a wooden skewer to hold together

Add pre-cut & printed party logo

—————————————————————————

Cat in the Hat Tomato & Cheese Stack

Layer cheese and tomato to create the “hat”

***For a caprese salad version, add balsamic vinegar with olive oil, fresh basil, salt & pepper and garlic salt to the tomatoes before assembling stack

One Fish Two Fish, RED FISH, Blue Fish Stack
