Happy Earth Day!

Posted on Updated on

IMG_3292I gave the kids a little surprise today for Earth Day. I made them a Lorax Earth Day kit. In it were materials used to make The Lorax’s mustache:

1) Outline of Lorax’s mustache (you can find it online)

2) a stick

3) a message from the Lorax

Instructions:

1) Color the mustache

2) Cut it out

3) Stick it onto the stick

Put it on your face and tada! You’re The Lorax! 😀

Made the paper bags out of pages from a magazine. They were to make it at home to remind them the importance of keeping of Earth safe and clean.

This is a super simple craft you can do with your kid at home too! All you need is above (except the message from the Lorax)

Storytime & Craft: Elmer and the Lost Teddy

Elmer and Teddy Bear craft (download the outline here. I got it from another link but I just couldn’t recall it)

I think Elmer the patchwork elephant, is every kid’s favorite elephant. I have the entire collection (No, I’m not indicating I’m a kid ok :P) And this one is about Elmer helping his friend, Baby Elephant find his lost teddy. While out on his search, Elmer lent his teddy to Baby Elephant. Upon finding and returning Baby Elephant’s lost teddy, Baby Elephant’s mom asked Elmer if he was afraid that Baby Elephant might keep his teddy too. Elmer said he knew Baby Elephant wouldn’t because everyone’s teddy is special to them.

So as for craft, I asked the children to make their very own special teddy.

Hope you’ll enjoy the story and craft as much as we did! 🙂
