The Lorax and Dr. Seuss Fun Snacks and Crafts

Being crafty and being a foodie are not my strengths. So as an evolving mom, I’m making an effort to make fun snacks and crafts with my boys.

Although these snacks are filled with sugar (and food dye) I couldn’t resist exploring Pinterest and finding super fun food crafts for The Lorax and Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

Pinterest is the best place ever to find awesome crafts and food ideas. Just saying.

Rock UR Party, inspired us to make Dr. Seuss’ Truffula Trees. Her’s look like Martha Stewarts. Mine look like an evolving mom’s…and I’m totally okay with that.

Truffle TreesThe Girl Who Ate Everything inspired us to make Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs. I burnt the white chocolate chips the first time I melted them in the microwave, but I have to say, I was impressed with how they turned out (my kids were impressed too).

Green Eggs and Ham Dr. Seuss Fun SnacksFancy Frugal Life inspired us to make Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat snacks. She used red gummy life savers, which I couldn’t find, so we used red licorice string. I still can’t figure out how her she made the white icing look so good. My white ice is a bit of a delicious debacle.
