We were recently reading the book Elmer by David McKee, and found it to be surprising good. I admit to occasionally judging a book by the cover. especially kids books, and this one didn’t look like my cup of tea. However, I wanted to do elephants for E, and the list of books about elephants is rather short. So we ended up borrowing it from the library, and like I said, were pleasantly surprised!! This book is really cute, and the illustrations are great! It even has a pretty good message. At the end of the book they have a colorful elephant parade, and I thought that would be something fun to recreate.
First, I tried to draw an elephant similar to the ones in the book. In case you aren’t as artistic as me (yes, major sarcasm there!!) I scanned one of my elephants in for the taking!
Then we went to town with our crayons! I asked Baloo to pick one elephant from the book that I could color, and he picked the brown one with color stars. We also colored one plain blue to be Elmer.
We only managed 4 before Baloo was sick of coloring.
Then we glued popsicle sticks to the back of the elephants, and let them dry!
Then we had our colorful elephant parade!!!
I love doing letter recognition crafts, and although this was kind of gross and messy, I think the message got through!!
While making eggs that morning, instead of tossing the shells I rinsed them out and put them aside to dry. I put them in a baggie so we could break them. Be very careful because egg shells can be sharp!!
Baloo smushed and smashed them carefully.
Then we discovered that crunching them with our fingers made even littler pieces.
After the eggs were sufficiently smashed, we cut out and glued our E’s down to some green paper. I made the e’s black so we would have some good contrast with the egg shells.
Next we spread the glue out evenly on the E’s, and started sprinkling egg shell bits on them!!
The finished product.
