Do you like

This is another classic that most people think about when you say Dr. Seuss.  We didn't do a craft last year with this one.  Instead, we watched this short YouTube video and made our own green eggs and ham for dinner.  Don't forget to involve your children!  Sweet Girl loved mixing up the eggs.  See below for other takes on this fun meal.

Take it further:  Play tic-tac-toe with green eggs and ham with this print out.  Check out some counting, rhyming (cut them out and put them on index cards) and matching ideas here.  I also found these cute addition and subtraction sheets.  This sheet will have your child matching rhyming words and putting egg puzzles together.  (Older children can read and match the words and younger children can match the puzzle piece part.)

Green Eggs and Ham Meal

Ingredients:  Eggs, green food coloring, thickly sliced ham or whole ham, oranges (to put on the side)  *You could also substitute the food coloring with spinach or pesto.

Supplies needed:  bowl, fork, pans (one to cook eggs and one to heat up ham), knife

What to do:
  1. Slice oranges and put on serving plates.
  2. Cut ham into slices and warm in a frying pan.
  3. Crack desired amount of eggs into a bowl and scramble with a fork.  Remember, "poke the yolk" to help you get started.
  4. Add plenty of green food coloring to the eggs and combine well.
5.  Pour eggs into frying pan and cook until desired consistency.
6.  Serve ham and eggs warm and add a few slices of oranges.

A different take on "green eggs" but both of these are fun and original.
Green Eggs and Ham Sweet Treats

I didn't do any of these last year, but they all look like fun recipes to do with children.  There are two variations with chocolates, with or without the pretzels.  You could also use a square pretzel, white chocolate wafer and green M&Ms (similar to the ones here I made for Christmas).  I think I'm going to try a variation of the pretzel stick ones.
Sweet + salty = yummy!
Can't get much easier than this!
These look pretty real, don't they?
