What’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book? There are so many classic titles to choose from, ones that I read in my own childhood passed down to my kids now. One such book is The Lorax. And we had a lot of fun bringing it to life with our Fork Painted The Lorax Crafts.
We’re on a roll with Dr. Seuss crafts lately, but these Cat in the Hat Pencils Toppers, our adorable Horton Hears a Who Egg Carton Craft, and Fox in Socks Handprint Craft are still some of our go-to’s for Dr. Seuss Day, too.
For our Fork Painted The Lorax Crafts you will need blue and orange cardstock, acrylic paint in yellow, pink, and purple, paper straws, large googly eyes, orange poms, a glue stick, scissors, and a fork for painting.
Fork Painted The Lorax Crafts
- Glue stick
- Orange cardstock
- Yellow acrylic paint
- Large googly eyes
- Orange pom
- Blue cardstock
- Acrylic paint – yellow, pink, purple
- Paper straws
For The Lorax, begin with a full sheet of orange cardstock.
Dip the tines of a fork in yellow paint. Press the fork into the cardstock to make eyebrows.
Do the same to form a furry moustache. You can scrape the tips of the fork tines to make more textured lines, too.
Then adhere large googly eyes.
And glue a medium sized pom in place for the nose, as well.
Now for the Truffula Trees, use the fork to paint balls of color. We liked making 3 trees on a page.
Then cut paper straws to fit from the tree tops to the end of the page. Glue in place. You can also bend the straws to make a bit of a wavy truffula tree, too.
How fun is that? I love fork painting.
