Dr. Seuss Snack Ideas to Make with Kids

Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd. He is one of my favorite authors and with so many books to choose from you can become inspired instantly by each one. One fun way to celebrate is by getting in the kitchen with your mini chef and make some Dr. Seuss inspired snacks that would be fun to bring into your child’s class, serve to friends at a Dr. Seuss inspired party or just as a fun after school snack.

Butter Battle BookHOMEMADE BUTTER inspired by the Butter Battle Book

My boys battled to see who could make butter the fastest. It was fun for them to see the liquid turn into a solid mass within minutes. We then added the butter to heart shape molds (because that is what we had on hand). Over the weekend we made homemade bread so spreading homemade butter on top seemed like the natural thing to do. Wanna learn how to make your own homemade butter? It’s super easy. You need 2 maybe 3 things.

Heavy Whipping Cream

1/4 teaspoon Salt (optional)

2oz or 4oz Clear Container

Pour whipping cream about half way up the container

Add 1/4 teaspoon salt 

butter making shaking



Pour whipping cream half way up in the container, then put in salt. Seal the lid tightly and begin shaking, shaking, shaking until the liquid begins to form into a solid. Once it’s a solid mass you can spread on your favorite bread or put into molds. Once in the molds place in the fridge until hard. Then snap out and store in a container in the fridge.

That’s it! Pretty easy huh? It’s so good and a fun experiment to do with the kids. For more fun Dr. Seuss food and craft ideas head over to my Dr. Seuss Pinterest board.

    Did you dunk the bananas in lemon juice before putting the kabobs together ? I plan to do this for a baby shower. Thank you !!

    What did you use to draw the faces on the marshmallows of the fruit kabobs? They are adorable!

      I wondered the same thing. So cute but I don’t think having my kids eat Sharpie is a good idea. :0

    I had the same question. Is there an organic, edible marker?
