The new movie Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is soon to be released (this Friday) and I’ve done another craft in celebration! This time I put together a felt story board for children – after your kids see the movie, they can reenact the story at home. My version is a bit simplified, but guaranteed to delight. I had such a fun time making it, and you can create as many scenes from the movie as you like. Click through the jump to see another scene and to find out how it was made!
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. They will have a great time.
Before you begin, you’ll need to collect: an embroidery hoop, pen, scissors, craft glue, adhesive velcro, felt in various colors, wiggly eyes and fleece for the sky background. Follow the tutorial below to make the story.
