I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.
For Earth Day and Arbor Day one of my 5 year old classes made some Truffula Trees. They're so easy to make and a lot of fun.

  • Step 1

    Take two different colored pipe cleaners and twist together to make them spiral around each other tightly.

  • Step 2

    Add a drop of glue to one end of the pipe cleaners.

  • Step 3

    Insert the glued tip into the pompom.
    (use red, pink, orange, yellow, or purple to be accurate to the book)

    Step 4

    Now you can display your Truffula Trees anyway you please!

    Add to a display board, stick in a flower pot, or some clay, use as door decs.

    Besure to add a quote from the book THE LORAX for added effect.

    "I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues."
    -THE LORAX by: Dr. Seuess
