eggshell Lorax planter

It is always a good day to remember to take care of the earth.  

Dr. Seuss' book The Lorax reminds us of the importance of protecting the trees and keeping the air and water clean and safe for living things.

Read the book, and make an eggshell Lorax planter.

what do you need?
small yellow pompoms
small googly eyes
yellow yarn moustaches 
(I made them out of pre-cut rug hooking yarn)

I put craft glue on the eggshell for the kids, and they transformed an eggshell into the Lorax.


They look pretty good with everything glued on.

The Lorax reminds us of the importance of taking care of the earth.

One way we can take care of the earth is to take care of plants. (And we think the Lorax would look pretty spiffy with green hair!)

Fill the eggshell with potting soil.

Add seeds (we used grass seeds).

Put the Loraxes on the windowsill, water,

and wait for them to grow green hair.
