Strawberry Soda –  You can use any carbonated strawberry beverage that you prefer, but we like Fanta.

Blue Cream Soda – Frostie Blue Cream Soda is such a beautiful blue color.

Red, white, and blue sugar sprinkles – You can use anything you want, but the sanding sugar has the best coloring for Cat in the Hat.

Must Have Resources:

When making Mocktail Recipes at home, you really need to have the following Amazon affiliate tools on hand.

A great (and pretty) mocktail takes a stash of a few fun tools like the ones listed above.  So, if you are planning to make cocktails and mocktails when entertaining, it would make sense to create your own little bar box!  This way, you are prepared when the unexpected guest drops in.



Make it a Meal:

Main Dish:  Make a meal of it and serve up some fun green eggs and ham, too!

Side: A little food coloring can help you turn cauliflower into pretty and pastel Truffula trees!

Don’t forget Dessert: These Cat in the Hat fruit kabobs would be a perfect ending to your Dr. Seuss inspired meal!

When is Dr. Seuss’s birthday? 

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday! This also happens to be National Read Across America Day as well! Young kids will love having a themed party full of sweet treats, healthy treats, and possibly even a fun craft or two. 

It’s so much fun to make this fun treat! No matter if you’re looking for new Dr. Seuss snacks or need a fun cat in the hat snack recipe to share with family and friends, this recipe is easy peasy! 

Throw a Dr. Seuss inspired party with themed recipes that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages! Don’t forget to decorate with your favorite books and add 

How do I encourage young readers? 

There are so many ways that you can make reading fun! Making a fun snack is a great idea, and might be the only reason that they want to read in the beginning! You can then add in some great Dr. Seuss books and other good choices and let their curiosity for reading grow. 

If you want kids to read the Grinch, introduce a Grinch smoothie recipe or Grinch rice krispies treats! You can also make fish rice crispy treats to pair with 1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. You can make a blue drink to make it look like fishbowl water! 

If you make the main ingredient a part of the story, it’s a fun way to make the Dr. Seuss stories come to life! A healthy way to encourage reading a good book would be to have fruit and marshmallows on a bamboo skewer for Lorax marshmallow pops. 

A fun cat-in-the-hat dessert idea would be marshmallows with a strawberry tip! You can also make a fun cat-in-the-hat cupcakes recipe for creativity as well. The hat top can be fruit, meringue, or marshmallows!

These cute and whimsical kid-friendly slushies are perfect for just about any kid occasion. From birthday parties to family backyard get-togethers, this yummy treat is sure to please. And what's really fun about these red, white and blue slush creations is that they are made using soda pop. And more fizz means more fun.


  • 1 cup strawberry soda
  • 1 cup blue cream soda
  • 5 cups ice divided
  • whip cream
  • red white, and blue candy sprinkles


    Into a blender add 2 1/2 cups of ice and 1 cup of strawberry soda. Secure the lid and pulse until you have slush ice. Spoon strawberry slush into shooter glasses half-way.
    Place the shooters in the freezer to keep them from melting.

    Rinse out the blender and repeat the process with the blue cream soda and ice.

    Remove the shooter glasses from the freezer and spoon in the blue cream soda slush on top of the red slush. Leave a 1/2 of space at the top of the glass.

    Return the glass to the freezer for 10 minutes.

    Remove from the freezer and top with whip cream and red, white, and blue candy sprinkles.
