Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday Jillian's daycare is celebrating Read Across America and each day they having special snacks, dressing up silly, making crafts and doing other neat things.  Me being the crafty mom I am wanted to make a special treat to bring to class.  This is my take on a treat for "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish."


First I used a red paint pen to write "One Fish, Two Fish" and "Red Fish, Blue Fish" on 15 clear plastic cups. I bought the cups at the Dollar Tree, 10 for $1.00.   


Then I mixed up two boxes of Berry Blue Jello according to the directions.  I poured the jello evenly into the 15 plastic glasses. 



I let the jello set up for about an hour in the refrigerator and then placed 2 red fish into each cup.  I also got the red fish at the Dollar Tree.


After putting the fish in I then mixed up 2 more boxes of Berry Blue Jello and poured it over the fish.  Once the jello sets up you'll have a yummy Blue Berry "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" snack!

Did something very similar for my preschool class today. We did use the Swedish fish (which were extremely chewy.)

Making these but in a trifle bowl for my son's Dr. Seuss themed birthday party next weekend. Target carries the chewy fish in assorted colors for $2 a bag.
