Dr Seuss Day 2- The Lorax

Today we continued our Dr Seuss celebration.  We read The Lorax, painted pictures of truffula trees and ended the night watching The Lorax.  
This was actually my first time to read the book.  We all enjoyed it.
I found this idea on Pinterest.  I thought their pictures were really cute and knew the girls would enjoy doing it!
They painted their backgrounds with watercolors and then we painted their fingers for the trunks.
Lyric wanted to go with the more traditional trunk of brown.

 Story decided to copy the book and go with yellow and black.
 Cadence also went with yellow and black trunks.
 Surprisingly, Cadence wanted to do her picture when all but one of the trees were gone and the sky was covered in smog.
After we did our trunks it was time to stamp on our treetops.

 We did all the painting this morning and then Devon helped them add to their pictures this afternoon.
Story printed out a picture of the Once ler.
 Lyric added the line from the book, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. its not."  She also added "Save the trees!"
 Cadence added The Lorax and The Once ler and, " Don't chop down trees.  Trees are good for the planet.  Hear my pleas."
The pictures turned out really cute and we had fun working on them!
