Earth Day is approaching and this is a good opportunity to teach your kids about the environment. One of the best books that focuses on protecting the environment is The Lorax. I don't know any child that hasn't fallen in love with this character. It's such a sweet story and really hits home how it depicts how much of an impact we all have on the environment, both positively and negatively.
I re-read the Lorax to my children this week and to celebrate Earth Day even more, we made a Lorax craft. To make this craft, have your child paint or color a paper plate. Trace your child's hands with yellow paper and use them as The Lorax's mustache. Make some eyes, a nose and his eyebrows and there you have a cute craft for Earth Day.
