My little guy came home from school worn out and hungry like a bear. He ate half a bagel while I tried to figure out what we could scavenge up around here. Before I could figure it out, he blurted out, ‘tomatoes and cheese, please!’. Turns out we had both and some Trader Joe’s crackers. I thought it would be fun to make mini caprese, but as I was slicing I realized these tomatoes and cheese would make perfect Cat in the Hat, HATS! They are easy enough that Lincoln could assemble them. We grabbed the book The Cat in the Hat and read it while we created our hats. We ended up having a Dr Seuss marathon, perfect snack and activity for my tired boy.

8 Cherrub tomatoes, sliced

Skewer a tomato slice onto a toothpick, followed by a cheese slice, continue until there are 3 slices of tomato and 2 cheese. Leave a little room on the bottom to place the toothpick into the center hole of the cracker. Done!
