Last week was the last day that my the student teacher in my daughter's first grade class would be there. Her teacher had the idea to make truffula trees so when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew they would be perfect. They were quite easy to make and luckily I had all of the ingredients at home. I think they came out pretty cute! I saw some other pins where people used pretzel sticks for the tree trunk, mine used straws. If you want to make them all edible, I also thought it might be cute to use Pirouline cookies. These would be great for a Dr. Seus or Lorax party or even as a special treat for Arbor day.
