This Lorax Storyboard is a Fun Dr. Seuss Activity

If you’re looking for simple Dr Seuss activities, this Lorax storyboard made from felt is easy to assemble and provides hours of play!

Skills Required: None. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you’ll be able to make this project pretty easily. It just requires cutting felt for the bulk of the craft.

This Lorax Storyboard is a Fun Dr. Seuss Activity

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you some fun Dr. Seuss activities – starting with a felt Lorax 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 story board! 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 Lorax storyboard 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.

I didn’t want to free-hand the little guy himself, so I printed out a graphic and secured to the felt with a piece of tape. Then I cut him out, along with eyebrows and a mustache from the gold felt.
