Lessons With The Lorax Blog Tour

I was asked to participate in a blog tour to support the upcoming release of Universal Pictures’ Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.   I am so honored to be part of this wonderful series.  

The Lorax

I can't wait to go see the movie.  I think the kids are really going to love it. 

In honor of The Lorax, I wanted to share a project reusing an item that can be found in most people's homes.  Reusing items around the house and transforming them into something new is one of my favorite things to do.   It's rubbing off on the kids too.  They are notorious for finding uses for things that are destined for the recycle bin.  I love that!!

We have had such a mild winter this year.  With temperatures in the 50's and 60's, it feels like Spring is just around the corner.  I am already planning our garden for this year.  To satisfy some of my gardening cravings, I decided to go ahead and get started on some of my herbs.  Today I am going to show you how to turn toilet paper rolls into seed starter pots.

Let's get started.

The first thing you will need is toilet paper rolls, preferably ones that have not been bleached.  I did find some that looked like they had been bleached.  I used them to see if my project would work.  I won't use them in the garden though.


Then you want to cut the rolls in half.


Next, cut up newspaper or any other thin non glossy paper you can find.   The newspaper really worked the best, but I also had some brown paper that was used in a package I received.  It worked pretty well too.   Cut the paper into small strips.



Then layer the strips across the bottom of the toilet paper roll.  I also put a strip all the way around the toilet paper roll to secure the pieces across the bottom.



The kids loved helping.


Let them dry overnight.

Once they are dry, you can fill them up with compost or potting soil.


I placed a couple of cilantro seeds in each of mine, then covered them with the compost.


Then give them a little bit of water.


Once your new seedlings are big enough and it is warm enough outside, you can transplant the pots to your garden.  Remove the paper bottom before planting to allow the roots more room to grow. 

Be sure to check out the other blog tour participants.

What a clever idea! My boys are excited about planting for the spring too.

Stacy said...

Another thing for my to-do list! Thanks for sharing it. Make sure you let us know how well they start sprouting. I wish I had a good window to do this in. Our south facing windows wouldn't work well for having a bunch of seeds sitting in them.

Lisa Sharp said...

I had seen people use toilet paper rolls for seedlings but I always wondered how you closed up the bottom, now I know! :) I really wish I had a better place in my house to start seedlings.

Love the use of TP rolls!

Lori Popkewitz Alper @ Groovy Green Livin said...

Your photos are gorgeous. We have so many toilet paper rolls-it's great to find another use for them. I was trying to see from the photos how you were able to get the strips to stick. Did you tape them on? Maybe I missed that in the instructions. Thanks for sharing such a great craft. Happy to have found your blog!
