Elmer the Elephant
Empty plastic milk jug
Colourful tissue paper/coloured paper cut it in small squares
Scissor and glue stick
2 goodly eyes. If you don’t have them draw and colour on a piece of paper, cut it out and stick it on.
Extra plain paper to cut out the shape of the ears
Step 1: Cut out the milk jug to result in a shape of an elephant. The handle can be the trunk and make sure you cut the shape of the elephant’s legs (see picture). Ask a grownup for help when cutting the jug. Don’t forget the tail to!!
Step 2: Now start sticking the colourful tissue paper on the elephant shape, then add the eyes.
Step 3: Draw two ears shape and cut it out, then stick the colourful tissue paper on them.
Step 4: Stick the ears on the elephant’s head. Now your Elmer is ready and you can play with it or read a story and make it come alive.
