We love Elmer the Elephant. Long after we have read all his stories (multiple times) it is always nice to have some remembrance of him around.
We have found a wonderful adaption of him along with a few friends!

Although this takes some preparation, little fingers many get tired cutting the cardboard, this project was always a crowd pleaser.
We set aside two days for the project. The first day cutting and gathering all out scrap fabrics and the second day gluing and creating!
