4 Crafty Projects to Celebrate The Lorax

by Marie on February 16, 2014

We love to celebrate our storytime reading with fun crafts and activities to further our learning and exploration of our books. With Dr. Seuss’s birthday coming up on March 2nd, I’m highlighting 4 activities to craft for one of my favorite books, The Lorax.

Dr. Seuss Birthday and The Lorax Crafts

Here are 4 activities to celebrate The Lorax!

1. Truffula Tree Pom Poms: Create this framed craft with sparkly pom poms and baker’s twine. The twine makes for the perfect stripes in those Truffula trees!

2. Lorax Felt Hand Puppet: This no-sew hand puppet is the perfect craft to make The Lorax come to life. Add some glue to your felt puppet and he’s ready to “speak for the trees”!

3. Bar-Ba-Loot Snacktime: Enjoy a festive snack with chocolate graham bears and some marshmallows to represent the Bar-Ba-Loot from the story. You could even add in some cheesey fish crackers as well!
