1. One Fish, Two Fish . . .
Start with blue Jell-O in clear, plastic glasses. Before it completely sets, add two or three gummy fish. How else might you use Jell-O for Seuss-inspired recipes?
2. Green Eggs and Ham.
Let the food coloring begin! Experiment with colorants and coloring foods. Be sure to track your progress!
3. Who Feast.
The roast beast and Who hash are just the beginning. Create your own Who feast for a celebration of fun.
4. Wacky food.
While making wacky food from scratch might not always be an option, a wacky decorating job surely is! Take pre-made cookies, cupcakes or even slices of bread and use that as your base for creating your own out-of-this-world design. If you’re feeling really inspired, create your own Who-feast.
5. Make butter!
As either a science experiment or a way to make your own food, take a page from “Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?” and try making your own butter.
Sometimes the textures, flavors or even look of food can turn us off. Items like cat liter cake are great . . . once you get past the idea of it being liter. What other questionable foods can you incorporate in your Seuss Eats.
7. Rename it!
What comes to mind when you hear “roast beast”? Perhaps roast beef? Perhaps an entire chicken? Renaming items you make is a great way to incorporate foods your kids already know into a theme. Who knows, the names might stick!
8. Explore what others are doing.
Before you create your own recipes, check out what you can find online. Try a recipe or two.
9. Create your own.
Seuss was nothing if not imaginative. This is your chance to be imaginative with food. Don’t worry. Even if it doesn’t come out like you planned it, no one will know.
