(tot school tuesday) lorax plant pot

We made this fun Lorax pot for Earth Day yesterday, but in the words of my dad: “Earth Day is everyday”. So, grab a paint brush and help your kiddo make a Lorax pot of their own to plant a few seeds in. I received seed “bombs” from Lowes at the blog conference I recently attended and they apparently don’t require any soil (just drop them anywhere and water), but we needed something to weigh down our pot so we used soil. Logan loves that he has his very own pot and keeps reminding me to water it. Let’s hope he didn’t inherit my non-green thumb. Check out my Lorax inspired truffela tree activity and enter to win a crocheted Lorax hat.

Activity: Lorax Plant Pot


Miniature Terracotta Pot

Orange Acrylic Paint

Sponge Brush

Googly Eyes

Orange Pom Pom

Craft Glue

Yellow Adhesive Felt


Seeds or Seed “Bombs”



Step 1: Have you child paint their miniature terracotta pot orange, using a sponge brush. Allow the pot to dry.

Step 2: Cut a mustache and eyebrows out of yellow adhesive felt. You may have to help your child with this depending on his age. Have your child attach the mustache and eyebrows to the pot.

Step 3: Have your child attach 2 googly eyes and an orange pom pom to the pot using craft glue.

Step 4: Help your child spoon potting soil into their Lorax pot. Have them sprinkle seeds or drop a seed bomb inside of the pot. Grass seed would be a great option for this project. Spoon a little bit of potting soil on top of the seeds. Lightly water the plant daily.
