Make a Green Eggs and Ham-Inspired Placemat
You can't eat green eggs and ham on any ordinary placemat. Before she devours her own version of this unique breakfast made famous by the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss, she's going to need a one-of-a-kind placemat inspired by the book. This writing and drawing-filled project gets her to practice some basic words and phrases from the favorite children's book as she prepares an extra special spot at the table!
What You Need:
- Contact paper for laminating (optional)
What You Do:
- Use one large sheet of paper as the base for the placemat. Ask her to write the words: “eggs,” “ham,” “spoon,” knife,” “fork,” “Sam,” “house,” and “mouse” on the sheet of paper leaving space for an illustration beside each word.
- Encourage her to draw a round plate in the center of the placemat.
- If desired, laminate the base of the placemat with contact paper.
- Get a second sheet of paper for her to draw illustrations to accompany the words written on the placemat. Make sure she draws a separate picture for each word
- Ask her to cut out the pictures. If desired, you can also laminate the pictures with contact paper.
- Now your child can match each word with its correct illustration! She's sure to work up an appetite as she pieces together her very own green eggs and ham placemat.
