E Is for Elephant Craft

E Is for Elephant craft

Is there an elephant in the room? There will be—after your preschooler creates this week’s ABC Craft! Share all the jumbo-sized fun with your little one and celebrate the letter E at the same time.

Here’s What You’ll Need

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter E Craft

  1. Print the E Is for Elephant Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter E and the elephant ears, feet, and trunk onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter E and the elephant pieces.
  4. Glue the letter E and the elephant pieces onto a full sheet of card stock (we used purple, but you can use any color you like) to form an elephant.
  5. Affix two googly eyes to the right of the elephant’s ear.
  6. Use a marker to draw the ear and trunk details (see sample on the template for placement).

Learning with Your Letter E Craft

As you and your child assemble your E Is for Elephant Craft, practice saying /ĕ/–/ĕ/–elephant together. You can find more tips for working on pre-reading skills with your preschooler in this handy download.

Suanna,
One thing I love about digital calendars is that I can put an “event” on the calendar for years in the future and will receive an email or notification about it to remind me of things like this. That way I don’t have to rely on my mommy-memory, which isn’t always great.

Stacy Manley

says:

Wow! That is such a great idea. I am not good at remembering to use technology. I forget stuff like this all the time and then run across it again when it is too late.
