We LOVE The Lorax by the infamous Dr. Seuss! It is the perfect book for teaching environmental awareness. The Lorax is all about saving the Earth, protecting the trees, and giving an important message about the effects that our actions have on the environment around us. The best part is that this book does so in a way that really appeals to little ones! We are huge fans of both the book and the movie, both of which center around the beautiful, colorful truffula trees. These adorable palm print truffula trees are a great easy keepsake craft to make with your kids after reading the book.To make them, you will need a piece of white cardstock ,ink in orange, yellow, and pink , and yellow and black crayons. Ink your child's palm in each color and print on the paper. Then draw the tree trunks. I love how colorful they were, and the ink really captures all of the lines and curves of little hands!
