Handprint Alphabet – E is for Elephant

| May 12, 2012 | 8 Comments

Now, this is a very special handprint craft letter – the letter E for Elephant! Why, is this so special, I hear you ask? Well.. I saw the gorgeous Cheshire Mum do this exact same handprint elephant a few weeks ago and it was this handprint that may be think “of course, my kids would LOVE this”… and the Handprint Alphabet Series for preschoolers was born! Thank you Claire for the inspiration. This one is for you!

The handprint elephant is very cute indeed! It helps to show your child and example of another elephant (e.g. show your kids this post or Cheshire Mum‘s) and then they can see that you have a trunk and four legs created from your hand print… so to make … you need to paint the whole hand:

But in a nice way.

Once dried they decorated with our favourite googly eyes.

  1. I love the gray paint – we don’t use that often so this makes the experience even more fun!

    Good point Deborah – grey is a much neglected colour in kids’ art!!! Didn’t think of that!

    Oh that is great. Maybe I could do it for T for trunks lol.

    Oh yes, T for Trunk would be a great “cheat” :-)
