Happy Birthday Dr. Suess

On March 2 we had a birthday party in honor of Dr. Suess and went to see the new Lorax movie since it opened that night. So I themed our party around The Lorax which is also one of my favorite books growing up!

I made these for our little guests to each take one home for a favor. So simple, pipe cleaner wrapped with black ribbon and pom poms (found at Hobby Lobby as well as the flower plates below) glued on top. Print off the text and done!

Spray painted them white, used a magic marker to draw the black lines on, glued on pompoms and shoved fake grass in the bottom.

PASS!! So I made blueberry muffins instead.)

Plus the movie was so so cute and all the kids loved it!
