Lorax Truffula Pot Party Favors

truffula-pots

G asked for a Lorax birthday party this year and I couldn’t have been more thrilled. We love the Lorax in this house, and have always read that book to the kids since the day they were born. I have been jonesing to have a Lorax themed party for a long time. No, I did not sway him and yes, it was a Lorax themed birthday party at Chuck E Cheese (totally atypical I know, but it is a MUCH longer story…don’t ask) ;-). Regardless, he loved it and we both loved creating ideas for his party.

We had a bunch of mini-flower pots leftover from a previous craft, so I figured having the kids use them to create a Lorax Truffula Pot to plant their truffula seed in was a great idea!

Supplies:

Mini-ceramic flower pots (one for each party guest)

Acrylic paint in assorted colors

Paintbrushes

Cardstock

Ribbon or baker’s twine

Pea seeds

Instructions:

1. Spread out some newspaper and paint truffula trees on the flower pots. Here is where you can get creative. Truffula trees are an assortment of colors and they aren’t perfect. Have the kids help! Let the pots dry.

2. Either using a craft punch or scissors, cut out square shaped pieces from cardstock. I used this quote from The Lorax, “Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care. Give it clean water and feed it fresh air.” and wrote it on each piece of cardstock.

3. Take an individual pea seed and tape it to the back of the cardstock.

4. Using ribbon or baker’s twine, tie each card to the flower pots.

Kids love planting and this book has such a wonderful moral to it. It is a great activity for them and a quick, personal, adorable party favor!
