Don’t you just love the story Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss? I have to say it is one of my favorites. In the story, Horton the elephant finds a flower that has a teenie tiny voice coming from it. As he looks closer, there is speck on the flower. Well it turns out, that speck is a whole other world of Whos! In this fun and frugal kids craft, you will make your own Horton Hears a Who Flower, complete with a tiny Who on it and everything. Take a peek below at how easy this craft is. It is a great way to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday which is March 2. Ready to get crafting? Take a peek!
Horton Hears a Who Flower Craft
We found all of our supplies at the dollar store!
1. Begin by applying a dab of glue to the tip of your pipe cleaner.
2. Press a crafting pom pom to the end of the pipe cleaner. Press it for several seconds so you can be sure it has adhered well.
3. Take a small scrap of white paper and ball it up until it resembles a spit ball. Don’t worry, you don’t have to spit on it! Just get it really tiny. This will be your Who.
4. Add a dab of glue to the Who and press it to the pom pom.
If you want to glue on a tiny strip of paper that says “I’m here” you can.
