March 2nd, 2019 is National Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday!

Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!

Check with your local Library for local family events!

Last year I made some fun Dr. Seuss inspired treats for my boys to share with their classmates. These One Fish, Two Fish themed jello cups are super easy to make. I am all about simple self-explanatory treats. All you need is Jello and Swedish Fish candy, you can also top with cool-whip.

I have also in years past surprised my boys with Dr. Seuss inspired treats as an after-school snack. You can check out those after school snacks here:

This is a fun event to share with your kids’ teachers if they do not already celebrate it. Volunteer to bring in some of these treats and read a Dr. Seuss book to your kids class, I’m sure your teachers and children would love that.

Find pictures of the treats I made last year for my boys on my blog I like to make a week of it. We had Green Eggs and Ham themed pancakes for breakfast the day before.

Pancakes are my boys’ favorite things so we had Cat in the Hat Themed Pancakes the morning of and we even splurged with Nutella and Strawberries. There are a ton of fun ideas on Pinterest.

See the pictures of more treats I’ve made for my sons’ classes on my blog. Thing One and Thing Two Inspired mini cupcakes. I used a store-bought frosting that I dyed blue and used store-bought cotton candy for the hair. You want to put the cotton candy on last, as it sits on the frosting the moisture changes the cotton candy. I downloaded the Thing One and Thing Two Printable here:
