Dr. Suess

Yesterday was the birth date of Theodore S. Geisel also known as Dr. Suess. This year we decided to celebrate his birthday for him.

We made a small treat for each of Zacks classmates (when I say we, I mean me. Zack decided it was more important to go outside to play).

'The Cat in the Hat'

It is just a Oreo Fudge Creme with a marshmallow on top held on by some frosting, then I piped a couple stripes of frosting in red to look like the hat from The Cat in the Hat. Simple, easy and all the kids and teachers loved it in school!

Zacks class made some Cat in the Hat hats to wear in school. He was so excited about this simple little hat he wore it for a long time.

After he came home from school we made some Green OObleck also known as goo. He had a blast playing with this. When it was in the bowl it was hard and he could punch it but when he grabbed some and lifted it, it was a liquid. He asked if we could make this again another time.

When dinner time rolled around we could not let the day pass without having some Suessical type of dinner. I know it is hard to see in the picture but that is green eggs and ham.

'Green Eggs and Ham'

And to end a wonderful day of celebrating a legend in the world of children's books we sang happy birthday to a man who brings such joy to many children around the world.
