I love this time of year with so many special days and anniversaries to celebrate. I’ve always enjoyed sharing the Dr Seuss books with my children. We’ve tried a few different crafts to celebrate Dr Seuss Day, which falls on the 2nd of March, such as the Grinch paper plate craft.  Today we’re sharing another Dr Seuss craft, with our one fish two fish Rice Krispies treats, inspired by One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, a 1960 children’s book by Dr. Seuss. It is a simple rhyming book about a boy and a girl named Jay and Kay and the many amazing creatures they have for friends and pets. These treats are simple to make and really fun to eat.

    These look amazing, if I was making them the marshmellows would not have survived the cooking process without me eating them!

    These are so much fun to make (and then munch), I can remember making these with my Granny although not in fun shapes and colours like these fish.
