Paper Elephant Stand-up Craft

Pin It
This is a cut elephant craft that stands on the table.

Materials:

  • piece of construction paper
  • markers
  • scissors
  • rectangular piece of felt
  • decorations like paper stars, stickers, dazzle shapes
  • glue
  • tape
  • short piece of yarn
 Directions:

  1. Fold a piece of construction paper in half.
  2. Use an elephant template or free hand draw an elephant shape starting at the fold.
  3. Cut out the elephant so you have two identical shapes attached at the top. Do not cut the fold.
  4. Cut two fan shape pieces for the ears.
  5. Glue the pieces on either side of the head and fold back to make the ears.
  6. Glue on a piece of felt over the top to make the elephant's saddle.
  7. Glue decorations on the saddle.
  8. draw on eyes.
  9. On the inside, tape a piece of string for the tail.
You could have each child make an elephant of a different color and then line them up to make a circus parade. You could use the same concept for different animals.
