Elmer the Elephant has become a favorite storybook character here at home. After reading Elmer by David McKee with the kids, we were inspired to make our own elephants using stencils and sponge painting.
Because Theo is still quite a fan of Elmer, I decided to search the internet for even more fun Elmer activities. Here are some activities and crafts for kids that would go perfectly with a unit on Elmer or as an extension to many of the Elmer books including Elmer’s Special Day and Elmer and the Rainbow.
