Alphabet Wall: Making…E is for Elephant
DD was very excited to do art and craft today and before I could even start with what E was for – she already suggested Elephant! “Like the ones in the zoo!”
I wanted to try a different painting technique this week, so I cut up a dishwashing sponge into half.
You will need: Marker, artblock sheet, black and white paints, paintbrush, dish or palette to mix the paint, sponge, scissors, glue.
1. Draw out an E on your artblock sheet. Draw also the side profile of the elephant’s face, and an ear.
2. Mix your paints. Dip the sponge in and brush over the sheet until the E, face and ear are all covered. We had so much leftover paint that I let DD paint the newspapers while I cleared things away! 😉
3. When dry, cut out the pieces.
4. Glue the face on the top left hand corner of the E and the ear just overlapping it a little. And Elephant joins African Safari pal Zebra on the alphabet wall!
