Truffula Tree Paper Plate Craft

We made a Truffula Tree paper plate craft after watching The Lorax. (affiliate link) My son loves the pretty trees in the book. This easy craft  would be perfect for a Dr. Seuss party!

Here’s what you need to make this Truffula Tree Paper Plate Craft:

Truffula Tree Paper Plate Craft


Cut the edge off of each paper plate so that you are left with just the middle circle.

Cut around the edge of the circle at an angle. Slightly separate and fold the cuts in towards the middle. This will give the truffula trees a little bit of texture.

Watercolor paint the truffula trees, by lightly dipping the brush in water then in the paint.

 Truffula trees are usually orange and pink, but there are other colors in the movie and we like to let the kids use their imagination!

Let the water colored truffula trees dry, glue a popsicle stick onto the back and done!
