Lorax Craft: 
We made Lorax puppets using straws, pipe cleaners, pom poms, and googly eyes. The Lorax buddies are Ellison pumpkin cutouts. I cut the second arm out of each one by using a different copy and lining it up and cutting it (no tracing). It took about an hour to do 100 while I was on the desk (so I was answering phone calls and helping people in between cutting.)
