Paper Plate Elephant

This Paper Plate Elephant craft is an easy animal craft made from simple materials you probably already have around the house or classroom. Perfect for Preschoolers on up!

Ages: 3 and Up

Here's what you'll need...

• Paper plate
• Grey or light blue paint and brush
• Grey or light blue construction paper
• Glue
• Google eyes or black marker
• Scissors

Here's how you make it...

1. Paint the back of your paper plate (the 'eating side' of paper plate usually have a waxy finish which makes it hard for the paint to take, so make sure you use the back of the plate).

2. Cut out a circle, cut it in half to make the ears. Cut a long strip for the trunk.

3. Fold your trunk accordion style.

4. Once the paint is dry, glue or draw on your eyes, glue on your ears and trunk, and you're done!
