30 Ways to Have Fun with The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

There is one author that no childhood would ever be the same without.  This author would be Dr. Seuss!  His creative mind has kept children reading for decades through the 44 books he's written!  February's Virtual Book Club Author is Dr. Seuss and we are so excited to bring you more than 20 Ideas to go along with his books! 

We're focusing on one special book called The Lorax by Dr. Seuss with our children.  We've been working on Acts of Kindness and I think this book ties right into those same goals.

2. Handprint Truffla Tree by using yellow and black paint to create the stems of your trees with your finger only, no paint on the palm or thumb.

3. Add the tops using DIY Stamps by attaching a foam sticker to a recycled lid. Just simply cut out the desired shape first then dip in paint and stamp.

4. Draw your Own Lorax using this printable and video to learn how to make your own Lorax.
5.  Then attach your Lorax and words to your dry paper full of truffula trees.

We had so much fun making our own Truffula Trees and the Lorax.  We decided to print out the quotes from the book too to remind us of the important of making a difference.  We typed out "I am the Lorax.  I speak for the Trees." and "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot.  Nothing is going to get better, it's not."  by Dr. Seuss.  We talked about ways that we can care for our trees.  

Are you ready!  We're sharing different ways to explore The Lorax with Kids Crafts and Activities!  We've used our teacher and mama eyes to find you the best printables, learning activities, playtime fun, snacks, party Ideas, crafts and videos.

The Lorax is one of my son's favorite Dr. Seuss books. He would love making truffula trees with his handprints!

Hi. I posted a link to my blog post and my thumbnail isn't showing up... Any idea as to why? (This is only my 2nd or 3rd time linking up anywhere, so I hope I did it right!)

My post is the one named "Happy Birthday To You, Dr. Seuss!"

Please let me know what went wrong and how I can fix it so that my thumbnail appears with my link.

Sara I'm not sure why it's not showing up, are you able to delete it and just resubmit it? If not we can delete it, just let me know. Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Kim @ The Educators Spin On It said...

We'd love for you to share a link of our post on your site, thanks for asking Sarah.

Kim @ The Educators Spin On It said...

It was a lot of fun, we talk about ways to use our hands to help protect the trees too so it was symbolic for her.

The Lorax is definitely one of my favorites! Your painting is wonderful - so cheerful. We'll see if we can fit something of Dr Seuss to participate in this link up.

Sara Gaitan said...

Hi. Thanks for getting back to me. I do not see a way for me to delete it and repost. If you can do so on your end, please let me know so that once you delete it, I can repost. Thanks!
And this Virtual Book Club idea is awesome! I love all the ideas that I have found this month and previous months! =)

Very innovative the way you made your Truffula trees. I think the kids would love making them also. They look so good.
