Green Eggs & Ham Hat

Every year my son's elementary school makes a big fuss about one chosen book, this includes a costume to wear on the last day of the festivities. The year he was in kindergarten they did Dr. Suess. Each grade was assigned a different book to focus on. Kindergartners got Green Eggs and Ham. I decided to make him Sam I Am with a plate of paper green eggs and ham on his hat. He loved it and it was easy for him to be comfortable in his costume.

I love, love, love the Green Eggs and Ham hat. Very cute!!!

BTW, you've been holding out - all this time I thought you only had two blogs. But, now that I know, the world will know. Okay, maybe not the world, but those who frequent my blogs, for sure.

Aren't I obnoxious!

I would like to know how did you do that plate of green eggs and ham. I will appreciate it if you would help me, because I have to do something similar for a concentration class on the University. Thank you

Alexis, these green eggs and ham were inspired by my aversion to Thing 1 and Thing 2. We wanted to do something a little different, and paper is my friend! I used cardstock for the eggs and a lighter weight cardstock for the ham. I just created an odd shaped tunnel on a round piece of foam-core board and glued a flat end to the large opening. The eggs I cut freehand and stacked with those foam squares that have adhesive on both sides. The green yolks were just cut with a round paper punch. For the fork, I cut a double thickness freehand and sandwiched a thin wire between them so I could get it to stand up with a curve. A black Sharpie marker added that Dr. Seuss touch. Good Luck!
