We love Dr. Seuss! The books are cute and easy when learning to read. The Lorax is a favorite movie at our house so we decided to plant a Truffula Tree! Our Truffula seeds are Sunflower seeds and we will plant them outside on Earth Day but for now we are happy with our cute, fluffy trees!
What you need:
Feathers or Fluffy Trim
Fill your flower pot with soil and pour Glue on a paper plate or other throw away surface.
Roll the top few inches of your straw in the glue.
Stick your feathers to the straw. We used two colors to make ours extra fun!
Bury your flower seeds in the soil. Make sure not to water the seeds before you move them on Earth Day.
Plant your Truffula Tree!

Cute! And instant gratification in gardening. 😉
Instant Gratification is where it’s at when you are 6! He got up this morning and checked to see if the tree grew 🙂
I love this idea! Something all kids would enjoy doing.
It was really fun! We rhymed the whole time.
What a great idea! Dr. Suess lived here so everything is big about him right now around here.
Oh how fun! I had never considered where he lived…
I agree with the “instant gratification” comment. My daughter planted some seeds last year and they never grew. It was awful! This is creative and goes great with the movie/book!
ugh! We went through that last year too. They were so incredibly disappointed 🙁
Oh my gosh these are one of the cutest things I have seen in a long time!
Thanks! We sure thought the were!
How cute! And a great way to spur interest in gardening!
For sure! We talked last night about what else we can plant when Spring comes.
This is soooo adorable!! I had no idea what to expect, and now, I want to do some of these with my kidlets!! 🙂 🙂
Oh too cute! My kids would love to do this.
That’s a perfect craft for this week. I just love the truffula trees!
What a fabulous idea! These would even make fun gifts for Dr. Seuss lovers or teachers!
This is the cutest idea I’ve seen for a Dr. Seuss theme craft. My kids would absolutely love this!
So much fun! What a great winter activity
So cute and finally a plant I can’t kill.
LOL. Those are adorable! I didn’t even think about how easy it would be to “plant” one!
HA! That is totally cute!
I love it! Such an adorable idea!
How cute is this?! My boys would be all over it. It would be fun to watch Horton and then make these afterwards – make an afternoon of it!
What a cute idea! The Lorax was the first movie my son ever saw in a theater so we are quite partial to the book as well- this would be so much fun!
Those are so funny! I wish we could do that life sized, you know?
So pretty! I am going to “plant” some with my kids too! I think they will get a kick out of it!
