My littles and I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Dr. Seuss and his legacy this past Friday (Dr. Seuss’ birthday is March 2) with some seuss-tastic snacks and activities! I even had the pleasure of reading Green Eggs and Ham to my kindergartners class. We ended the day with a fun Lorax craft that is easy, great for all ages and that the kiddos will love doing. And with the release of the Lorax this past Friday-it is quite timely!
All you need is
*pipe cleaners (we found some great animal print ones that are great tree bases at Michaels)
*puffy pom poms
*model magic clay (we used orange for the Lorax and green for the grass)
There is one trick however. We didn’t want to hot glue the poms to the pipe cleaners so we took a pinch of pom between our fingers and wrapped the pipe cleaner around that amount. It worked really well for the larger poms but not so much for the teeny poms.
As for the Lorax, we simply molded his shape, arms, and legs out of the orange model magic, made a mustache with some yellow pipe cleaner, and used a black sharpie for his features. Yes, there are a ton of ways one can improve on this little guy but after preparing Seuss stuff ALL day, this was all I had left 🙂
What fun Lorax activities have you been up to?
