Wacky Elephant Art Project

Allow the children to use their imaginations in creating a whacky elephant that is anything BUT gray!  Provide colored construction paper, scissors, colored markers, crayons, glue and all kinds of add on's such as feathers, foam, confetti and moveable eyes. 

The above sample was made by using two 6" diameter circles.  A slit was made in the center of the orange circle to insert the truck which was then taped to the back side.  Wiggle eyes were glued on and blue sticky dots added for decoration!
