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 the paper plate.
- Cut the colored paper into a triangle, two rectangles, a semicircle, and a crescent.
- Glue the shapes onto the paper plate to form the tail, legs, ear, and trunk of the elephant.
- Glue a wiggle eye onto the paper plate between the ear and trunk.
For another fun elephant craft, try my E Is for Elephant Handprint Craft.
