I have often talked about making green eggs and ham for breakfast or dinner on this day but the idea of green eggs is a little unsettling.  But this is brilliant!!  Green Eggs and Ham Pretzel Bites!!  What a great sweet and salty treat that goes perfectly with one of the most well known Dr. Seuss books!


Write a Story:

So we are introducing the idea of more reading to the kids on this celebration but why not start teaching how authors create books for us to enjoy?  This is an art that can be started at a young age and something that kids work on for a long time.

This Preschool Alphabet Book is a great way to start this kind of activity.  Have the young kids work on something that will create a big alphabet book or even have them do a short story with their drawings.  The possibilities are endless!  Creative minds are fun to see grow!


Favorite Book:

Have the kids find and share their favorite book.  This would be a fun activity in a classroom or daycare but especially at home.  Even younger kids can do a verbal book report on why they enjoy reading their favorite books.
