Happy Dr. Seuss day! March 2nd is the birthday of a man who is regarded very highly in our household from my own childhood and in my children’s.
I have many fond memories of learning to read with Suess’ amazing quirky stories and many more of reading them again to my own kids. There is just something about all the quirkiness and fun that draws everybody in and I haven’t met anyone that doesn’t adore his stories. My kids are lucky, they have “The Cat in the Hat” and “The Lorax” on DVD as well as many well loved stories in our home. What better way to celebrate than by including their favourite stories in their lunchboxes today!
First up is my Kindergarten Boys lunch. Packed in his Kmart lunchbox (I really love this box for kinder) he has “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green eggs and Ham” theme:
I started with a vegemite cat sandwich using a cute z cute animal palz cutter, a Hat carved apple, a cheese stick with cat in the hat drawn on the packet, a fruit and veggie yoghurt, Green eggs (I opted for filling them with peas because my kids won’t eat green devilled egg) ham rolls, a blueberry and strawberry Thing 1 and some kiwiberries that have just come into season.
My Grade 1 Boy has his favourite “The Lorax” and “Green eggs and ham” plus “Cat in the Hat”.
Packed in his planetbox is Ham and Pretzel Truffula Trees, yoghurt covered apricot green eggs made with a foodoodler spot, broccoli trees, carrot flowers, cat in the hat cheese stick, green eggs, baby corn and coco2 Lorax sandwich with Gouda cheese moustache (I find Gouda great for not breaking)
Plus we will share some Seuss favorite stories tonight.
