Step 1: Cut the orange construcion paper into small squares about 1 inch in size. Depending on the children you are working with you can have the children do this themselves or you can do it for them.

Step 4: Use the rest of the yellow construction paper to make the Lorax eyebrows. You can cut them out like on the project below (I drew little duck feet as eyebrows) or you can create your own. Have the children glue them towards the top of the plate.
Step 5: Glue on the googey eyes or make your own eyes and glue on a pom-pom for the nose, you can also use a button as a nose or draw one with crayon.
Enjoy your Lorax!
