Flannel Friday: The Lorax Dice Game

Quite a few weeks ago (nearly a month!), I did a Kids’ Art for Dr. Seuss’s birthday. (Kids’ Art is my cleverly disguised storytime with a large art project for ages 3-7.) While we wait for the paint to dry, I read a couple of books, occasionally sing songs/do rhymes, and play games. This month, our game was this amazing flannelboard game:

I originally got this idea from Smashed Peas and Carrots, via Pinterest. We rolled a giant inflatable dice to build our Lorax and this was the runaway hit of the program. Afterwards, I had moms asking me for the pattern to make at home!

    LOVE it! I saw this on Pinterest, too. I want to make it for next year for out Dr Seuss Family Game Night. I’ll bet your kids has a blast playing with your awesome Lorax!

    Btw, I like your idea of a “cleverly disguised storytime”. We have an art class for 3rd through 6th graders but the librarians offering it do not connect the art to books in any way. I wish they would do like you! Very smart and clever idea!
