Pack a Dr Seuss Celebration Lunch

Dr. Seuss Celebration idea:

Pack a lunch!

Pack a Dr Seuss Celebration Lunch

I wanted to send my kids something fun in their lunch to celebrate Dr.Seuss’ birthday – I thought I would share what I came up with in case any of you want to do the same. March 2nd is the big day, but no worries, this is super easy to throw together!

Pack a Dr Seuss Celebration Lunch

Green Eggs and Ham

I just hard boiled eggs and dyed them green and then diced up some ham lunchable style (I am also sending cheese cubes that are not pictured).  In the past I have tried dyeing scrambled eggs green and that works also, but I thought this was a little more appetizing and easier to send for lunch!

The Minks like to drink pink ink

Strawberry yogurt drink

and Blue Goo

blue J-ello

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

Fish crackers

The Cat in the Hat

I layered strawberries and this delicious fruit dip (must try) as my attempt at making it look like the CAT’S HAT…at least I tried:)

Pack a Dr Seuss Celebration Lunch

I found these great free printable stationary pages, here.  On them I wrote out a key for the food they will eat so they won’t think I am off my rocker sending CRAZY food to school.

Pack a Dr Seuss Celebration Lunch Some of these free printables would be fun to throw in their lunch also:

Printable Dr. Seuss word find

Theodor Seuss Geisel printable activities

Write your own Dr. Seuss poem printable

Or write up some Suess quotes on the free printable Seuss stationary!

a FEW of my favorites:

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

    This is one packed lunch all of the kids would want to trade for! Or at the very least, it would be the talk of the lunch room! What a hit! Dr. Seuss lives on!

    I found some pins from Target about a year ago- 6 Dr. Seuss pins for $1. On my students' desks I put a little note and a pin for them to wear tomorrow. We are decorating large lunch bags to make hats and I found an activity doodle pad at Michael's that the kids can use when they are done with a project. We are playing a bunch of games from seussville.com and reading LOTS of Dr. Seuss books!

    This is fabulous! Every little detail! The strawberries and fruit dip look delicious. Where do you get your little disposable snack containers? I'm adding a link to this in my Dr. Seuss Link Collection and planning to feature it tomorrow for Dr. Seuss' birthday.
