Crafting with Elmer the Elephant

By | August 11, 2014

Every Monday we visit our local library for story telling and crafts. Today’s story was an Elmer one, about the lovely colourful patchwork elephant.

The children had fun making their own patchwork Elmer’s using coloured paper and glue. Little Sis was actually more methodical than her older brother, carefully lining up all her pieces of paper. I think they both enjoyed this craft.

When we got home we carried on with the Elmer theme. We used a couple of cylindrical sponges cut in half to paint Elmer. The sponges were quite big so Elmer filled up quickly!

Big Brother managed to keep his circles quite distinct but Little Sis let her creative side get the better of her, she used the sponges as a paint brush.
