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.
