Love For the Lorax

img_1740   img_1739Today we continued our celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday by making our own Lorax.  First we “read’ the book.  Since Olivia is only 2 1/2 I really just told the story while going through the pages, since I knew that she couldn’t possibly pay attention to the whole story.  After sharing the story with her, I showed her how to make her own Lorax. Here are the materials that you need:

  • 1 white paper plate
  • orange and yellow tissue paper cut into small squares
  • small white circles for the eyes
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Glue stick
  • black marker
  • pom pom for the nose
  • yellow construction paper (folded in half)

img_1745img_1746First we needed to cover the plate using Elmer’s glue to glue the tissue paper pieces.  I say “we” because Olivia lost interest half way through, and needed some help to keep the project going.  I traced Olivia’s hand onto the yellow construction paper, and cut out 2 hands.  These hands became the Lorax’s mustache.  Olivia drew a black dot, using marker, onto the white circles.  She used a glue stick to glue these on as the Lorax’s eyes.
