Cute Dr. Seuss Lorax Truffula Trees Snack For Kids

Looking for a fun treat to make with the kids? These Dr. Seuss Lorax Truffula Trees snacks are so yummy and delicious plus they are gorgeous!

Sr. Seuss is a famous author knows for some of the most classic books of our childhood. My daughter is 2 and she LOVES everything Dr. Seuss. 

We have SO many of the books and she is always asking us to read them to her. She loves all of the bright colors and of course the fun stories.

Dr. Seuss Truffula Trees

These snacks are so fun! If you are looking for a fun snack to make with the kids in relation to the Lorax movie (or book!) look no further!

These snacks are made with marshmallows, melted candy and coconut shavings. So simple! Brightly colored straws really make these fun treats stand out.

If you are using these as a part of a party display or something else fun, be sure to grab some mason jars to fit them into. You can arrange them by color or you can mix up the colors for even more fun.

A great way to get the kids involved with minimal mess is to have them squeeze the ziplock bag filled with coconut shavings and food coloring and make sure that every piece is covered with color.

What is needed for these cute Truffula Trees?

These gorgeous Paper Drinking Straws in Assorted Colors: that are in beautiful bright spring colors. Plus this Assorted Neon Food Coloring set that will work so well with the straw colors!

You will also need some small bowls, spoons, and snack sized zip lock bags.

Where should I serve these adorable Truffula Trees?

If you are having a rainbow party, or a party with a neon colored theme–these treats would be great for the display table or snack table. 

A Dr. Seuss party would be fun, or even just if you want to get in the kitchen with your kids to keep them busy!
