Dr. Seuss Snacks!


One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.  I admit it.  I love Dr. Seuss!  A collection of these sing-song-y rhymes was the first thing I put on the bookshelves of our very first baby nursery.  Four kids later, I now have talents that include being able to recite The Cat In The Hat from memory!

In honor of the late great Dr. Seuss (He would have been 107 on March 2nd) we are making these cute snacks!  Absolutely no skill or talent required!


Simply start with a box of blue Jell-O.....


and divide into four clear plastic cups.
(The fish have to have a place to swim!)


After the Jell-O has set, have the kids add their own fish!  (Swedish Fish, that is!)


Ella's kindergarten class gets a Dr. Seuss party after they have collectively read 107 books!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

  8. I also found it on pinterest! Thank you so much for this idea, it is really great. We are having it for dessert for Dr. Seuss's birthday tonight. It is perfect because my husband's birthday is next friday and mine is a week after that, we don't want too much cake in March but I wanted something fun and special for my kids today. Dr. Seuss made my childhood so magical, thanks for helping me share that magic with my own kids!

    1. You can definitely make them a day or two before as long a you add the fish when it's time to serve!

  13. I made this last year for my daughters preschool Dr Seuss party! It was a big hit!! But I forget how many can be made with one box...I was thinking I may need 2 boxes of jello for a dozen kids? What do you think?
