With Earth Day almost a month away (22nd April), let the kids be inspired by Dr Seuss' The Lorax to save our planet. This craft is very easy to make and will be a reminder of Dr Seuss' wise words from the book 'Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot ,nothing is going to get better. It's not.' This craft will undeniably have a positive influence on the kids to be environmentally friendly and take actions to preserve our beautiful Earth.

Cover the toilet roll with the orange paper and tape. Push excess inside the roll.
