In honor of Dr Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd, we made Handprint Lorax 3D Drawings. This also makes a great Earth Day Craft!
How to make the Handprint Lorax:
1. Start by tracing the hand in a closed position.
5. Cut tiny eyebrows and a mustache from yellow craft foam.
6. Glue them on along with google eyes and a teeny orange Pom Pom nose. Alternatively you could cut the pieces from construction paper.
1.Cut tree trunks from pipe cleaners to create the Truffala Trees. We used striped ones like in the movie.
2.Crumple up tissue paper in pink, orange, yellow, and purple to make the tops of the trees.
3.Glue all the pieces on.
I helped my toddler make hers. She did such an awesome job coloring the sky and the grass areas. I ended up gluing the pieces on for her since the pipe cleaners wouldn’t stay in place. On her artwork I wrote, “I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees” on my son’s I wrote, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothings going to get better. It’s not.”
The kids got to watch the movie for free! We currently have a free trial month of Netflix and The Lorax is one of the movie options. It’s a cute movie with an important message – making it perfect for an Earth Day activity. I love how bright and colorful the movie is.
