"A person's, a person, no matter how small" is the message carried through the wonderful story of Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss. In celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday, momstown has a fun Horton craft you can do with your children - after reading Horton, of course! momstown Burlington made these adorable Hortons with their little ones!
A favourite Dr. Seuss book and now a movie, Horton Hears a Who! is the endearing tale of an elephant to listens to and rescues Whoville - a tiny town full of tiny people named 'Whos' that is a speck of dust on the top of a clover. Kids will love hearing about Whoville - and Dr. Seuss's usual whimiscal and magical illustrations make this book memorable.
Let's make a Horton!
What you need:
- Paper plate
- Construction paper and scissors
You can precut ears, trunk, and eyes or have kids cut them out on their own. Using the paper plate as the base, have children glue on ears, trunk and eyes to make their very own Horton. You could also add a craft stick to the back to turn Horton into a puppet or mask - and act out parts of the story!
You can combine lots of Seuss stories with crafts:
