Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss’ birthday- and as a ‘retired’ reading teacher- I am happy to celebrate his birthday and honor his legacy. I volunteered to bring in eggs on Friday for Green Eggs and Ham– and I even made treats! However, I was taken a little off guard at the sudden announcement that my little guy needed a Seuss outfit in 2 days! (We are pulling it all together, and will show you a pic tomorrow!)
Anyways-I wanted to show you the treats I made today, just in case you wanted to make them for your school celebrations also!
I found these adorable SVG files on The Lady Wolf’s Free SVG site– you should check her out! She has lots of free files- and lots of copyrighted ones even–so of course you can only use them for personal use.
I opened these files in my Silhouette software and then put the layers together on the screen. I had to change a couple of the colors, but otherwise they looked just like the characters. Then I print the characters out on my printer.
Here’s what my mat looked like with the registration marks and the images put together:
I had to add a couple cut lines, using the offset feature-around the fish so that it didn’t cut out each eyebrow! 🙂
Then I sent it to my silhouette and it cut out all the little cats and fish!
I stapled them to colorful, skittle filled ‘sticks’ and VOILA! a perfect treat for Dr. Suess’ birthday!
(here’s where I get the clear candy bags)
Aren’t they cute? I think the Preschoolers are going to LOVE them!!
Have a great Thursday Everyone!!
