    Paper Plate Elephant Craft

    Making crafts is a great way to engage little learners. For our lesson on the letter E, my daughter and I made an adorably simple paper plate elephant.


    • Paper plate
    • Colored paper
    • Wiggle eyes
    • Paint
    • Paintbrush
    • Scissors
    • Glue


    1. Paint the paper plate.
    2. Cut the colored paper into a triangle, two rectangles, a semicircle, and a crescent.
    3. Glue the shapes onto the paper plate to form the tail, legs, ear, and trunk of the elephant.
    4. Glue a wiggle eye onto the paper plate between the ear and trunk.
