Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and because we celebrate all the things around here, we whipped up some fun from one of our favorites. We all LOVE The Lorax in this family. We loved the book before the movie was ever an idea. When I was a first year teacher (many moons ago), I met this young man who had it memorized and recited it at a bar as a story teller. I was mesmerized. I often wonder if he got married and had kids because gosh, he would be an awesome bedtime story dad. Anyway, back to Party Time with the Lorax!
The truffula trees are so magnificent. Their beauty is the beginning but the fact that they are needed by so many characters in the story is such a reminder of how much we need our trees. I made these with yarn and pom pom maker. I glued the pom poms to paper straws to finish them then stuck them in cupcakes from the grocery store. This might be my favorite project in Party Time with the Lorax.
These Once-Ler cookies are cake box cookies (vanilla) with green food coloring. You can grab the recipe HERE and then alter it to get the green. I cut out the Once-Ler’s hand from green felt and used Beacon’s Felt Glue to put it together.
Humming-Fish Mix is a great snack for a party.
- 4 C Popped Popcorn Cereal
- 1/4 C Peanut Butter
- 1 12 OZ Bag BLUE Vanilla Candy Melts
- Goldfish Crackers (Can Use the Graham Cracker Flavor)
- Melt Peanut Butter and Candy Melts
- Pour over Chex cereal in a large bowl that has a lid.
- Cover and shake mix.
- Chill then add fish crackers.
- You can add candies too if you desire.
Bar-ba-loot fruit skewers are sure to please young party guests. The best part about these are the cherries from Cherry Man!
I kind of crush on these Lorax cheese sandwiches because, well, because I LOVE CHEESE. For a party, I would just put one out and take grilled cheese orders based on cheese likes and dislikes.
Grickle grass juice is simply green juice and any brand will work. You can find several green juices in the juice department of your local grocery store.
Decorations are always so easy with Kunin Group felt. I made these tree tops from different colors. Glue them to ribbon with Beacon’s Felt Glue to create a darling garland.
Ta Da! It is Party Time with the Lorax!!!
For party crafting, clay is always a win for us. These little Lorax was made with Sculpey Bake Shop. Kids can do amazing things with polymer clay and baking it is easy peasy. This is one of my favorite crafty because they can take home something that will last.
Speaking of taking things home. A party needs a goody bag and this one works for me. I grabbed colored bags from the craft store and decorated them with Kunin Group eco-fi felt. Ta Da! If you would like the pattern, click HERE.
And last but not least, the most important part of all…the seeds! The Truffala seeds are the hope that comes when you createParty Time with the Lorax.
You can get the FREE food labels and the tags for the seeds in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store right HERE.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Happy Taking Care of Planet!
Happy All Things Literature for Kiddos!
