Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Dr. Seuss is my favorite children book author!
I love that good values and morals are taught through
silly words and funny animals!

Since Dr. Seuss' birthday is March 2nd, Saturday
 it's time to plan some fun activities!

 Start with the essential "Green Eggs and Ham" for Breakfast!
Or have some Butter Battle Book Homemade butter!
Here's how to make it:

You need a jar with lid (I use a mason jar)
1 marble
Heavy Whipping Cream

Pour cream in jar
It should be 1/2 full.

drop in the marble
Screw lid on tight

Let kids shake that jar...about 20 minutes until it's
 hard to hear the marble moving around.
Actually...I read "The Butter Battle Book" to my kids while they
 took turns shaking up our jar of cream. 
When the book was over, the butter was ready!

Then open it and spread the creamy butter on some toast...
--Butter side up or down?
Yummy!  (you can add salt, but we like it just like this)

Maybe you'll want to get dressed up special...

Cindy Lou Who Hairdo from How the Grinch Stole Christmas

And teacup headbands

Here's some crafty activity ideas!

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish!

Make an easy magnetic fishing set!

And of course...read some books!

 Finish it off with some Cat in the Hat
Hat Stacks!
(my weak attempt at cleverly rhyming!)
 Open an oreo or ten.
We opened extras and used the cream from the oreos
 to layer between the gummy lifesavers.
Hence making the red and white striped hat!
Have a great Dr Seuss Day!

Linking up to THESE parties this week!
