The Lorax movie opens on March 2nd, not coincidentally Dr. Seuss' birthday!
momstown communities have been celebrating Seuss all week! Today we tried a Lorax-themed craft that children of all ages can do.
Remember the Truffula Trees that the Lorax spoke up for? You can make your own with simple materials.
What you need:
- Construction paper
- Markers or crayons
Have children draw tree trunks with different coloured markers or crayons.
With the book beside for inspiration, this little momstown crafter got busy gluing pom poms onto the trees to make them look like Truffala Trees.
The Lorax book is a great introduction to teaching children to care for the environment, and to speak up for the trees like the Lorax does.
Here are some more ideas from Seussville on how to use the Lorax story as a teaching tool.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
