Green, Pink, Purple, & Orange Tissue Paper
White Paper Plate
3 Straws (any color)

How to Make a Truffula Trees Scene on Paper Plates

First, cut 10-12 1-inch squares out of the purple, pink and orange tissue paper. Then cut 25 1-inch squares out of the green tissue paper.

Next, take a pencil and place the eraser end in the middle of a green square. Twist the paper up around the pencil and dip it in a tiny bit of glue. Place it on the bottom of the paper plate and slowly lift out the pencil. Repeat the process until you have a line of grass.

Once you have a line of grass, take the three straws and cut different lengths. Glue each one onto the plate, making sure to have one end in the grass.

Repeat step 2 to make the Truffula trees. Press down each tissue paper in a circle to create the shape of the treetop. Only 10-12 squares will be needed to make the trees.

Once your scene is complete from The Lorax, let the plate dry.
