Lorax Earth Day craft

Sharing is caring!

While The Lorax is a favorite character to create for Dr Seuss Day (check out our entire collection of Dr Seuss crafts) , he also makes a great Earth Day craft. After all he speaks for the trees and is a passionate environmental defender. So a Lorax Earth Day craft sounded like a good idea for us to make.

We have adapted our Lorax craft to include the Earth and kids’ handprint for a more personal touch. The Lorax looks like he’s holding Earth in his hands. 

The template we have created for this craft comes with two Earth versions: one is already colored and kids just have to cut it out and glue it on while the other Earth needs to be colored first.

For more craft ideas, here is our collection of Earth Day crafts.

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