For today’s activity, I’ve been inspired by one of my favourite book characters – Elmer! Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is a children’s picture book series by the British author David McKee. Elmer is often used to celebrate diversity so in a time when we can’t be in school, why not create your very own Elmer to bring us together!
You will need:
- a cleaned out plastic milk container – a 4 pint one is perfect – and an adult to cut the bottle to the right shape
- coloured paper cut into small squares
- PVA glue
Don’t forget, email your Elmers to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is another rainbow, which was sent in recently:
