This summer I’ll be doing crafts based on children’s books. This week we read Elmer by David McKee. Elmer is the story of a patchwork elephant who wants to look like everyone else, but soon realizes that it’s boring to blend in with the crowd. At the end of the book the elephants have a parade, so the girls and I decided to make an elephant parade garland.

Simply print the template and cut out the elephants from card stock. Let the children paint, collage, or color them. Then string them together with twine. A fun and easy project for a summer afternoon. Stay tuned for more children’s book projects all summer long!
