Green Eggs & Ham, Hold the Ham

In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday this week, we have been reading all sorts of his books - Cat in the Hat, The Foot Book, One Fish Two Fish, Fox in Socks, and our newest addition: Green Eggs & Ham! Just wanted to share this super simple (and delicious!) snack to make that goes great with Green Eggs and Ham. All you need is white chocolate, green M&Ms, wax paper and patience while they're hardening up in the freezer to not eat them all immediately : ) Melt the white chocolate in the microwave until about half of the chips look melted, then stir quickly to melt the rest. That ensures that you don't burn your chocolate. Then simply pour little drops of chocolate on the wax paper and let your kids place the M&Ms in the center. We put ours in the freezer for about 15 minutes to let them harden and then had our snack while reading the book. I love the idea of crafts (edible or otherwise) that go along with books. It makes learning so much more fun!
