We love the book the The Lorax (Classic Seuss). It is a great book about protecting the trees and why we do it.

We always look for different ideas by making these trees. It has been with paper, yarn, and watercolors. And this year we are using q-tips for painting our trees!

It is fun to change up the way you do art!

How to make our Truffula Trees

Then we painting the ground green and the sky blue. I love that each of us did something different for ours. This is what makes open-end art projects fun. You have a similar start but different ideas about how you do it. This paper will take a minute or two to cry a little bit.

You then start by coloring the trunks of the trees. We use the q-tips to make our trees. We did brown trucks for the trees.

We used some white on a q-tip to make the strips on the trees. It is fun to see what everyone’s idea of where the strips should be.

Then we started on making the top of the truffula trees. We use the bundle of q-tips to make our treetops. We dipped them in paint and stamped the q-tips all over the page.
