More Seuss!

We had a great day filled with Seussical things! It started off with Ms. Amy "leaving" for the day and Thing One taking over. Unfortunately the Thing One hair was dreadfully warm and Thing One was not able to stay with us for the whole day, but she kept popping in and out.

I don't usually try to cram so many different things into one post, but I thought I would give it a try for our day full of Seuss! Although, I am going to primarily show you our fun food for the day!

We focused most of our day around 3 Dr. Seuss books:

Before breakfast, we read "The Cat in the Hat." Then, we decided to have a Hat themed breakfast.

We cut some bananas and strawberries into slices,

Then we stacked them in an AB pattern to make a wonderful  "hat for a cat!"  In my search for fun Seuss activities, I saw a lot of hats, but most of them were not very nutritious, so I thought of this one on my own ;).

We added some bagels and milk for a great start to our day!

At snack time, we "went fishing" looking for  "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish!"   We used pretzel rods as our poles, whipped cream cheese for bait, and tried to catch yummy colored fish crackers.

We also learned that Dr. Seuss was not really the author's real name. It was his pen name.  Each of the children had an opportunity to create their own books and come up with a pen name.

"You know what my pen name would be.... LILY!" - E.G.

"N-man" C.B.
"Actually, my pen name would be, maybe, I don't know." J.L.

"How about bowtie?" C.B.
"I gonna be Bullseye and Jessie" M.B.

"Batman!" J.L.
"No, you can't be Batman! Batman is BATMAN!" C.B.
The discussion over our pen names continues.   At lunch time we had Green Eggs and Ham!

Don't forget to stop by our letter to Dr. Seuss. How silly of him to think that the children had to be stuck inside because of cold and rain!

I am a new follower from the Friday Blog Hop. You have a great blog here, so many great ideas. We did a One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish muffin tin and I still plan on some other activities. I think I am going to borrow your fishing idea, especially because it goes very well with our letter this week, f and with another activity I created for this week and it can all connect back to our muffin tin. I love your cat in the hat breakfast. I took a look around, you have so many great ideas.
Hope you can come take a look at my blog.
