Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast for Dr. Seuss’s Birthday!
My children have been asking me all week if I’ll make “Green Eggs & Ham” for breakfast on Saturday, for Dr. Seuss’s Birthday. (March 2) Of course – you just can’t say no to cuteness like that! (even though waking up early on Saturdays to cook is NOT my thing…)

I sure have and was so excited to see that Redbox is offering a special promotion, 10 days of deals.
Jamie here, being frugal oftentimes means being creative – making do with less, and making it into more! I’ve often told my husband that if I could get a gold medal for only one thing – it would probably be the ability to “Make Do”. When something I want/need just isn’t on hand – or isn’t within my budget – I can usually look around and find something and “make it work”. (Case in point – the Tinfoil Heart Pancake Molds I showed you a couple weeks ago.)
Today is Mardi Gras – meaning “Fat Tuesday” in French – and it’s the last hurrah before the Season of Lent begins tomorrow (Ash Wednesday)! For many, tomorrow signals the start of a season that includes fasting, moderation, spiritual discipline and repentance in preparation for Easter. However, today is all about merrymaking and getting rid of all that yummy food in the house… by eating it!
Tori found this fun and easy Valentine’s craft on Scrumdilly-do, that would be super fun to do with the kiddos. She simplified it just a bit from the original. I love this fun Valentine’s kids craft, it’s so cute. I think I may go to Hobby Lobby this week and buy a blank wrapped canvas for the kiddos to make a hand print tree. I want to start adding Morgan and Caleb’s artwork to their playroom, this would be a great craft for us to do together.
You will need:
- Pink paint
- Red paint
- Brown paint
- Paint brush
Step 1: Use the paintbrush to paint the trunk first.
Step 2: Dip your thumbs in the paint, and use 2 thumb prints to create the shape of a heart. Repeat this step until you have enough “leaves” on the tree! Depending on the ages of your children, your “leaves” could be all different sizes. Even better mom, roll up your sleeves stick your fingers in the paint and add some big heart “leaves”. You’ll enjoy creating a masterpiece of memories with your little ones.
