Are ready to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday? If so, do it in ultimate Seuss style when you craft these easy and inexpensive Thing 1 and Thing 2 snack cups. You can make your own in minutes, and everything you need can be found at your local Dollar Tree store. Here is how you can get started making your own!
Red paper treat cups (sold 6 for $1 at Dollar Tree)
Blue tissue paper
White scrap paper
As mentioned, all of the supplies we used here can be found at your local Dollar Tree store.
1. Begin by creating the hair of your Things. Do this by folding the tissue paper into wide strips. Place several of the strips on top of each other.
2. Take your scissors and fringe the edges by making close cuts into the tissue. Don’t cut all of the way to the bottom, just far enough to fringe the paper.
3. Add some glue to the base of your fringe and press it inside of your treat cup.
4. Cut out a small circle of white craft paper. Use your pen to write Thing 1 or Thing 2 on the paper. Add some glue and press to the front of your cup.
Once your glue is dry, your Thing 1 and Thing 2 snack cups are ready to be enjoyed! See how easy and inexpensive these are? Gather your supplies and give them a try!
