Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration: Cat-in-the-Hat Snack

Because March 2 is the birthday of Dr. Seuss, I wanted to share a few ideas with you!  The first activity I have is a delicious snack!


  • Ice cream
  • Fruit by the Foot
  • Ice cream cones
  • Skittles or M&Ms
  • Pretzels or thin licorice

1)  Chill a plate in the freezer.  Wrap an ice cream cone with a red piece of Fruit by the Foot.

2)  Place a scoop of ice cream on the plate.  Add the ice cream cone on top for the hat.

3)  Add eyes and a nose (Skittles or M&Ms).  Use pretzels for the whiskers (or cut small strips of Fruit by the Foot or use licorice).

You can use whatever flavor of ice cream you want — we used Braum’s Brownie Batter — and it is soooo delicious!  I’m blaming it (instead of myself) for keeping these last few pounds on me!!!  I didn’t even get to eat one of the snacks, but I gained a pound just by looking at it! ;)

*I found and modified this idea from the 2003 Feb/March Kindergarten Issue of The Mailbox Magazine.
