Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax hits theaters this Friday, March 2nd! The movie follows the journey of a twelve-year-old boy as he searches for the one thing that could win him the affection of the girl of his dreams. In trying to do so he discovers the story of the Lorax, who is a grumpy yet charming creature fighting to protect his world.
I was lucky enough to screen this much-anticipated movie a couple of weeks ago with my girl. Watching The Lorax with my 4 year old daughter was such a treat because we got into so many conversations about trees, the environment and clean air. Loved how the book comes to life and makes an even greater impact at driving home a much-needed environmental message, while engaging kids with amazing colors, fun songs and quirky moments.
I actually left the movie in a very reflective and contemplative mode. I can´t remember any other family movie that had such an impact on me.
As many of us know, what’s beautiful about this story is that it’s been teaching kids to be environmentally conscious since the book first came out. One of the best parts of being green is how creative and innovative your and your niños can get. So, in honor of that we want to share with you a couple of fun ways to “speak for the trees,” as the Lorax does. Get crafty and check out three of our favorite projects for you and your kids below:
- The igloo made out of milk jugs!
- Flower phone book organizer
- Kids Plastic Bottle Green Craft Creation
