The Lorax craft

Sharing is caring!

The Lorax has become a favorite character for my kids after watching the play at the Children’s Theater. We’ve been listing to songs on Pandora since then and dancing on them too. With Dr Seuss Day just a few weeks ago, now it’s the perfect time to make a Lorax craft.

We’ve focused on The Cat in the Hat book so far and made several Thing 1 and Thing 2 as well as the Cat in the Hat crafts. We’re switching gears this year and planning on creating a few Lorax crafts.

Today we’re going to make a paper Lorax. Because we love paper crafts. They are easy and fun, especially when they come with a template like this one. Kids have to practice their scissors cutting skills and cut out the patterns and then glue them together to make the Lorax.

How to make the Lorax craft


The Lorax template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.

STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR HOME CRAFTING

Print the home template. Cut out the patterns and trace them on construction paper. The eyes are to be used as is.

To make the Lorax craft, you will need 1 orange body, 1 orange nose, 1 yellow mustache, 2 yellow eyebrows and 2 eyes.

Lorax body

Add the nose over the mustache.

The eyebrows come above the eyes, one eyebrow on each side.
