We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you some fun Dr Seuss activities – starting with a Lorax felt storyboard for kids. Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2nd, 1904, so we're coming up on his birthday. Dr. Seuss was so whimsical, and fun, and obviously made the best children's books ever . . . so I decided to honor him with a craft. As you can see, I'm having fun with The Lorax. Children will love to change out the scenes with this fun felt storyboard! This first scene is the Lorax with the truffula trees.
Here’s another scene: the factory and the cut down truffula trees. It’s kind of depressing, but it doesn’t have to be that way for long! Children can change out the pieces, and the velcro keeps the pieces secured (lightly) to the surface. Another great thing about this story board is that a child old enough to use a pair of scissors and glue can help make it. Dr Seuss activities are so fun – here's how this one is done.
Dr Seuss activities: Felt Lorax Storyboard
Gather These Supplies
- Embroidery hoop
- Craft glue
- Adhesive velcro
- Felt in various colors
- Wiggly eyes
- Fleece for the sky background
Before you do anything with your embroidery hoop, you'll need to trace the grass so that it fits the front of your “scene.” Trace a half circle, cut the grass to fit the inner embroidery hoop and then set aside.
Secure your fleece into the hoop by adding craft glue to the inside of the outer ring.
Here are all the parts to tell the story of The Lorax! Make as many story pieces as you like, and store them in a plastic sandwich bag when not in use. What are your favorite Dr Seuss activities? Let me know in the comments!
