The Lorax Party Ideas and Supplies!
Want to plan The Lorax Theme party or a birthday and are searching for ideas, supplies or favours? You are at the right place! Ideas on The Lorax Theme party food, décor and activities.
Not only is this a fun party theme, you can also take the advantage of this lovable character and teach the children something about environment. Official party supplies are still not available so some improvisation is needed.
I enjoyed this book as a kid and was really happy to see they finally made an animated movie about it. There is a lot you can teach a kid with this one so be sure to have this in mind when having this party and try to be eco friendly (do recycled crafts, plant a tree...)
Enjoy the ideas and do leave a comment :)

Lorax Party Drinks
Add fun moustaches to cups
Drinks should be as colourful as possible, smoothies are a good way to serve healthy party drinks. I love them and kids are quite fond of them too as they can be sweet (be sure to put in bananas).
You can serve them in a see through glasses and decorate them with colourful straws (truffula trees).
Alternatively you could serve orange drinks and decorate the glasses with Lorax moustaches as I did - you can take the advantage of the official Lorax Pumpkin Carving template (moustache pattern) to have them looking as the real deal or just go freehand, I mean it's just moustache in the end. Kids will be loving this. You can also draw the eyes on the cup, especially if you will be using plastic ones. I made these and the kids were loving them!
Try to serve up as much healthy food as possible.

Do you know Lorax stories or do you only know about the movie?
Lorax Party Supplies
Party with Dr.Seuss
There are no party supplies designed especially for Lorax but you can get Dr. Seuss (Lorax creator) party supplies featuring some of the most popular characters.
I was hoping they will be releasing them specially for Lorax but I guess this had something to do with the message the story is sending out - save the trees. Can't do that with paper plates now can we.
Cotton Candy Truffulla Trees
Kids will go crazy about this one
You can serve cotton candy on your Lorax Themed party, it will look great since cotton candy pretty much looks like Trufulla trees and kids will love it!
If you have a cotton candy machine you can also let the children pick which color their truffulla tree should be!
Check Cotton Candy Makers - Sweet delights
Do you like cotton candy? I am not much a fan now but when I was a kid I would kill for it, especially if it was pink. There wasn't a carnival where I wouldn't be annoying my parents to buy me cotton candy. I couldn't dream of having a cotton candy machine at home when I was a kid (well I did dream about it) but affording it would be a problem. But now? Small cotton candy machines are really affordable and will add that something special to the party.
Party Food Ideas
Cupkakes are a very popular food for any theme party since you can easily decorate them to match your theme.
*cupcakes with colorful toppings,
*cupcakes with trufulla trees decorations on them,
*cupcakes with Lorax cutout decoration on them or a printout from any move scene will look great.
Eco advice: use silicon cupcake baking cups - they look great, cupcakes bake well in them and they are reusable!

Food Markers - These Will Help You Create Masterpieces
I used to pipe small details both on cakes and cakepops but no more, everything is a lot easier with a pack of edible pens. I have a basic pack of 5 colors from Wilton but am considering to get more colors as this allows for more detailed work.
One of the most fun party food ideas that I have came across are certainly The Lorax Cake pops. They look super delicious and kids will just love them!
A step by step instructions on how to make The Lorax Cake pops can be fount at Bakerella.com . You will be surprised to see how easy (well at least some) of them are to make even if you are not a master chef.
You can use these as finger foods or you can use them to decorate other foods - cupcakes or as cake toppings. With these you will be sure to impress all the guests.
Super Cake Idea
Over at Thetreallyfrostsme.com you will find a tutorial on how to make this stunning sitting Lorax cake. And trust me it isn't as complicated as you might have thought.
When there I really recommend browsing through Thatreallyfrostsme creations as there are a lot of beautiful cakes to go through

Tree seeds as a party favour - Plant a tree
Why not give tree seeds as a party favour! Choose the colourful ones and pack them in small gift bags with a picture of how the tree will look and instructions on how to grow it. You can choose small trees that your invitees will be able to plant in pots.
I think this is a great idea for a party favor!
There are a lot of different tree seeds available to choose from but these two are my favourite.
Although I do like big trees a bit more, giving out seeds from smaller (bonsai) trees might be a better idea - since not all have a place to plant a large tree but a small one can grow in a pot.
I love red and I do think maple trees have really nice looking leaves.
Decoratins for The Lorax Theme Party
Truffula tree is a good starting point for decorations!
The easiest way to "make" truffula trees decorations is to have some colourful balloons filled with helium tied on a yellow string.
Cups and plates (if not official The Lorax products) can be orange. It is a good idea to have a green tablecloth (meadow).
Party supplies on eBay! - Get something unique
I love to browse eBay for party supplies as people can be quite creative with them.
Party Favours Ideas - Doodle dee doo!
With a Lorax doodle (colouring and activity book) you will make every young attendant really happy!
This book has coloring pages and stickers so what's not to love.
Coloring books aren't only fun but they also help your kids relax and train their motor skills.
A few ideas to keep them busy
As it is all about the environment the best activities for a Lorax party are the green ones!
*kids can do recycled crafts, this is both fun and educational - make them use old boxes to create something new
*you can plant a tree (or a flower)
*pin the moustache
You can make The Lorax mask for all who are invited or you can have an activity where your guests make their own Lorax masks.
You could also print out some Lorax coloring pages for the kids to color but remember to recycle the paper :).
