The Lorax Paper Bag Puppet And Free Printable

I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love The Lorax by Dr Seuss. We sure do. He is super cute, funky and makes a great character. Reading with kids is so important and not only helps develop literacy skills but we can learn a lot including learning about protecting the environment. Today we have a fantastic fun Lorax Craft which I really do hope you love. I sure love it. You can even download the printable Lorax template for free to help create your very own Lorax puppet.
