Elmer the Patchwork Elephant collage for kids

Little Sis has a lovely collection of Elmer the Elephant books. The stories are lovely and really reinforce the message that it’s good to be different. Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is a brilliant character to craft with so today we made a special Elmer collage. I printed out a template of Elmer, got a glue stick and raided our craft supplies for squares of coloured card.

My 4 year old loves crafting so was happy sitting and glueing the squares on. This is a fun way to craft and talk about colours. Collage is a really fun activity which we need to do more often.

Second-hand books

The weather was so lovely today that we took a picnic out to the Flying Club to enjoy whilst Dad was flying his planes. Afterwards we visited to the local Dogs Trust. We always find something in their second-hand book shop and today the 6 year old found a Star Wars book he didn’t yet have. He had to buy it but was then so engrossed that he forgot to look at all the dogs!
