Egg Carton Elephants!

Egg Carton Elephants
Project- Egg Carton Elephants - I found this project on the website The website provides wonderful directions and pictures. It even provided a template for the elephant head! This project really fit in nicely with our zoo/safari theme and it was really easy to do. I cut the shapes out of the egg carton and Connor and Lauren did the rest. They used pink chalk for the ears and googly eyes for the eyes. I helped with the hot gluing and the project was done! Materials needed - egg carton, hot glue or craft glue, googly eyes, pink chalk or pink crayon/marker.

The finished elephants!
