Truffula Trees are what everyone needs!

Since the latest animated adaptation of a Dr. Seuss book is in theaters, now is a great time to create truffula trees with a young reader to excite them about Dr. Seuss and reading. This craft features truffula trees depicted in the book and requires clay, striped pipe cleaners, glue, scissors, and pom-poms.

During the craft, take the opportunity to have a conversation about the illustrations and the plot. Following the craft, ask the child if there are truffula trees in other Dr. Seuss books to encourage the child to seek out additional books by Dr. Seuss for further reading.
