We Made A Lorax Tree Craft!

From this website , found on Pinterest, we found inspiration to make a Lorax craft.

Make sure to open the link above to see instructions I did not include here.

First, my daughter and my mother collected craft supplies. A piece of cardboard for the base...green construction paper...paper for a path....foam shapes....clay....popsicle sticks...pipe cleaner....yarn....glitter glue.

After wrapping the cardboard in green paper and cutting a winding trail out of black construction paper, my mother helped my daughter glue foam pieces onto the trail to look like a cobblestone path.
This wasn't in the movie, but any chance to use more glue was fun for my daughter!

To make the tree trunks, we used popsicle sticks . Pipe cleaners created the look of the stripes and helped to grab the "Truffula Tufts."

Here, we have sunk the sticks into mounds of clay that she then painted with green glitter glue.

We realized she even had tiny bears that she could include to replicate the movie, now all we need is a little Lorax.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It's not.

-The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

Hi Allison,

That is the cutest craft ever! I haven't seen the movie but I have seen the previews and it's so cool! Your daughter must have had so much creating this with her grandma.

If you're interested, Jennifer from Crafolic is offering a giveaway on my blog of her new game called Journey's End. Come and check it out if you like.

I do not know anything about "Lorax" the story or the movie. shame I know. Will educate very soon.

Nice craft. That turned out perdy.

And Dr. Seuss is a very smart clever man.
