Celebrate Dr. Seuss and National Read Across America Day

March 2nd, 2018 is National Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss's Birthday!

Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!

I grew up reading Dr. Seuss books and have passed on my Dr. Seuss books to my children as well as added to our collection over the years.  They are so fun to read with all the rhyming and silly names.

Last year I made some fun Dr. Seuss inspired treats and surprised my kids when they arrived home from school.  They loved it!

This is a fun event to share with your kids' teachers if they do not already celebrate it.  Volunteer to bring in some of these treats and read a Dr. Seuss book to your kids class, I'm sure your teachers and children would love that.

Here are the easy treats I made last year.
Cat in the Hat Kabobs
What you need: Skewers, Marshmallows, Strawberries, Bananas and an edible marker to draw the Cat in the Hat face.
These are easy to make, super cute and fun to eat off a stick.

Lorax Cuties
What you need: Cuties and yellow construction paper.  I cut out Lorax shaped mustache and eyebrows and taped them to the cuties.

Green Eggs and Ham Pretzel Snacks
What you need: Pretzel Sticks, Marshmallows, and green topper (fruit loop or green candy)

A super easy snack Popcorn in honor of Hop on Pop and Goldfish in honor of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.  The colored Gold Fish would look more festive, but I used what I had.

This year I am going to attempt to make a Cat in the Hat Pizza and a treat with cotton candy because I happen to have some Cotton Candy in my snack stash that needs to be used.  

Hat's off to reading and hat's off to Dr. Seuss, I hope you enjoy the day reading some oldies but goodies with your children, grandchildren or the kids in your life.
