The Lorax Dr Seuss Craft

The Lorax Dr Seuss Craft

Children can learn so much from books making them essential as part of their childhood. As Dr. Seuss said himself - The more you read the more things you'll know. The more you learn the more places you'll go. I try and include them in our play as much as I can. We also use them often to inspire our crafts and activities. I dont share ever set up we do on the blog but I do share them all on Instagram. Today's inspiration comes from The Lorax!
We love anything by Dr Seuss. It's not the first time we have been inspired by his work. We have created Cat in the Hat Puppets and Grinch Wood Slice Decorations.

This craft comes with a Free Downloadable Printable that can be found at the bottom of the page.

The Lorax Dr Seuss Craft

You will need:
Orange and White Card
Cardboard Tubes
Crayons/Felt Tips
The Lorax (UK/US)

The Lorax Dr Seuss Craft

Download and print out the Lorax template onto your white card. Time to get creative and let the little ones colour the Lorax with crayons, felts or why not try Little Brian Art Paint Sticks?  I can't recommend them enough! Have a look at us using them on Instagram! We even used them on the patio doors and made a fabulous Easter display with them. We use them on leaves, rocks, paper - you name it. 

They can colour him in the traditional colours or have fun with him and add their own artistic touch! 
Cut the pieces out and set them aside. 

I am yet to meet a child or adult for that matter that doesn't love and appreciate Dr Seuss. You can see all of his wonderful creations here on Amazon - (UK/US)

The Lorax Dr Seuss Craft

Cut a piece of orange cardstock large enough to wrap around the toilet paper tube. Wrap the orange paper around the tube and glue in place with your PVA Glue.

Glue the pieces of the Lorax onto the tube. Use the photos for reference. You could show your children a picture of the above or recreate one earlier for them to see when they do the activity. 

The Lorax Dr Seuss Craft

Use a pencil or something similar to slightly curve the legs before you glue them onto the tube. This helps give the Lorax some dimension.
