Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and Truffala Trees

The Lorax has been one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books since I was a kid. So, it seems only right, that I would honor this book, the week of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, for my son’s class activities. I volunteered to make cupcakes for them on Friday to celebrate the end of the week which is ‘Reading Across America’ which includes Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

So, of course, I hit Pinterest in search of ideas. When I saw these Truffala Trees made out of pixie sticks and pom-poms, I knew that that’s what I wanted to do for a cupcake decoration.

Instead of using pixie sticks, as the person did on Pinterest, I used decorative straws. The pom-poms came in a large bag of different sizes and I use the largest size. I bought all these items at Hobby Lobby. 

It was basically just a few minutes of work with my glue gun. These trees will now just stick into the top of a cupcake that has white icing with green sprinkles on top to make it look like grass.

Monday was wear your wacky or favorite hat. He represented in his Auburn hat. 

Tuesday was tacky tourist day. Cuteness. 

Read a few Dr. Seuss books this week to your kids.
