The beauty of our craft project is that it doesn't feel like a typical lesson. There's no long lecture or note-taking. Though there shouldn’t really be any of those for the younger kids anyway!

How To Make E is For Elephant
Here are the step-by-step instructions for the E is For Elephant
The first thing is to print out the letter e template on white construction paper. Cut out each of the pieces.
Next, using the gray paint, paint the E, the ear, the trunk, and the two feet shape.
Once they have dried, Glue the ear, trunk, and feet to the dark navy or black paper.
Cut around each piece allowing a small amount of the darker color to show.
Glue the ear to the back of the E giving it a floppy ear look. Next, glue the elephant's trunk to the end of the top line of the E. Then glue the elephant's feet to each of the other two lines of the capital E.
Next, glue the white paper circle from the template to the middle of the top of the E between the trunk and ear.
