Dr. Seuss Party Part 3: Food

I’m glad so many are pinning my 3 Dr. Seuss Party Favors made for $1 per kid. Until I posted about it, I didn’t realize just how inexpensive they were to make!
3 Dr. Seuss Party Favors
Now, I would like to share some kid-friendly and healthy Dr. Seuss inspired snacks. Please keep in mind our party was from 3-5pm, so I was not trying to create a meal.Dr. Seuss "Healthy Snack" Foods

Dr. Seuss Party Food:

  • Green Eggs & Ham – Deviled Eggs and Ham & Cheese Sliders
  • Go, Dogs, Go – Apple & Grape Cars
  • Cat in the Hat – Strawberry & Banana Hats (on a stick/straw)
  • One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish – Colored Goldfish Crackers

As I mentioned in a previous post, it was down to the wire getting all the food prepared and out on display. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of us assembling the food. I’ll try to give a few details about the process, as we look through pictures!

Green {Deviled} EggsThis was my first go at making Deviled Eggs EVER! My main goal was to make sure the “yolk” was green, it was a bonus that people ate them and even a few kids got seconds. My recommendation is to keep the filling recipe simple and not add pickles or onions. (I recently ran across a recipe somewhere that used guacamole to fill the eggs. Sounds good to me, but maybe not everyone loves avocados as much as my family.)

Green Eggs & Ham Snack FoodThe Ham & Cheese Sliders were a hit and easy to slap together. You just need Hawaiian Rolls (I used Original and Honey Wheat), sliced cheese (Colby Jack, Swiss, Cheddar), and deli sliced ham to construct these little bad boys. Then I baked them for 8-10 minutes at 350 F, to melt the cheese.

Dr. Seuss Fruit DisplayThe Apple & Grape Cars were a little more of a challenge because the grapes were not always a good shape. We used the apple slicer/corer to quickly create apple wedges, then cut grapes in half, and attached the grapes using toothpicks. The adults did not get the cute fruit. Extra fruit was available for them to quickly grab. I hope they didn’t feel left out.

Strawberry & Banana HatsFor the Strawberry & Banana Hats, I used stirring straws (for alcoholic beverages) to keep the fruit stacked. You could easily change up the ingredients of the hats to:

  • Tomatoes & Mozzarella Cheese (String Cheese)
  • Strawberries & Marshmallows
  • Red Gummy Lifesavers & Marshmallows

Fish {Crackers} BowlThen I used some leftover Goldfish Crackers from the Party Favors as another little snack. Displaying them in the vase/bowl, really made those stand out.

I did have a bowl of chips that I remembered to put out about midway through the party, but no book theme for them. There were no food labels because most of the kids couldn’t read and the ones who could, understood how they tied into Dr. Seuss books.
