My youngest has become quite obsessed with the Lorax. I swear she has watched that movie every afternoon (after homework, of course) for the past 2 weeks!  One of her favorite things about the movie is the trees. She wants one of her own.

Now given that I can't make an actual truffula tree, I had to get creative so I made her a hoop for her hoopla wall. (Yes, she has her own filled with hoops by various Craftsters and she loves them all!)


We've been having discussions a couple of times a week about the word UNLESS in the movie. Being a teacher, I had to turn this into a learning experience so we've had some serious (for a 6 yr old) conversations about why it's important to take care of our planet and everything/one on it. Needless to say, she's become quite upset over the latest drought because it dried up a local pond which is the home to her favorite duck family. If I'm not careful, we'll be adopting the lot. Either that, or she's going to want to run the garden hose to the pond. Wink

My 4 year old is obsessed with The Lorax as well--great movie, great message, great hoop! I cry every single time at the last song "Let It Grow." Such a sap.  Smiley

My kindergartener LOVES that movie. I may have to have a try at a hoop of my own for her room.

They (M and her big 1st grader sister) have their own hoopla wall too.  Cheesy

As a child i wanted the trees as well because they looked like the most wonderful fluffy candies. Love the embroidery.
