For Birthday Cake cut as 2 green eggs and a ham, the
birthday hats are Cat in the Hat hats--not difficult

at the party!
2. "Green Eggs and Ham" by the lunch table. We

3. "Oh, the Places you'll Go!" treasure
4. "One fish, Two fish" fishing game in a small
5. "The Shape of Me and Other Stuff"
race. We put plastic interlocking puzzle shapes all
over the lawn and turned on the sprinklers. Kids
raced through the sprinklers to pick up as many shapes
as they could find.
6. "Cat in the Hat" relay--2
teams race across the lawn, put on a Cat in the Hat
hat, white gloves and an oversized shirt, take them
off and run back for the next team member to go.

Thinks I can Think!
