This year I got to do a few special things. First I made this super awesome bulletin board.
I found this Dr. Seuss quote and loved it, it also fit in the library perfectly. Then I referred one of the Cat in the Hat books and sketched a mock up. I gave to Port Jefferson Library's resident artist, AnnMarie and she make a large scale version and TA -DA! it looks pretty neato
My Dr. Seuss March madness did not end there! If you must know the Lorax feature film was recently released (which I really hate what cinema has done to some Dr. Suess classics but that's besides the point). I figured it would grab the attention of some kiddies so I did a Lorax program! And if you don't know the Lorax.. why he speaks for the trees! So I decided we should make some Truffala trees.
You can to it's really easy! All that you need is:
Construction paper (I used yellow and red)
- I took the red construction paper and made two circles measuring 6 inches
- Then I stapled them together in three spots and left and opening on the bottom
- Then kids then decorated the red circle with different colored tissue paper squares (this is the top puffy part of our tree)
- Then they got to decorate the yellow piece of construction paper that was 8 x 11 inches
- After decorating the tree trunk we rolled it up and stapled it then place the puffy part on the top
- Instant truffala tree!
