Dr. Seuss – “Speck on a Clover” Craft!

“A person’s a person no matter how small.” – Dr. Seuss

This is birthday week for Dr. Seuss and we read Horton Hears a Who!” Afterwards, Miss 2 wanted to make her own speck on a clover. As a result, we created this DIY “Speck on a Clover” craft together.

Spring planting is around the corner, so I knew this “Speck on a Clover” craft would be fun “planting” practice for us too. I gathered all of the supplies I thought we might use.

I let Miss 2 choose the supplies she wanted to use to make her clover. The following list of supplies are the ones we ended up using out of the photo above.

You Need:

  • 1 Large Pink Pom Pom
  • 1 Small White Pom Pom
  • 1 Wooden Dowel Rod
  • Yellow Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Green Tape
  • Dried Black Beans (for dirt)
  • 1 Small Planter


1.) Paint the wooden dowel rod yellow and let it dry.

2.) First, have your child hold the dowel rod while you stick a piece of green tape to the dowel rod. Secondly, have your child slowly spin the dowel rod until the end of the piece of tape. Continue this process and leave about the same amount of yellow space in between each piece of green tape.

3.) Glue the small white pom pom onto the large pink pom pom.

4.) Glue the large pink pom pom onto the dowel rod and let it dry.

5.) Pour or scoop the dried black beans into the planter.

6.) “Plant” your clover into the dirt (dried black beans) and enjoy!

Miss 2 really enjoyed making this “Speck on a clover” craft together. Slowly turning the wooden dowel rod was a new type of fine motor skill practice for her. Now she said she’s ready for spring planting. This is a definite must try!
