E is for Elephant Letter Craft
Kids will love transforming this letter E into an adorable pink elephant!
What you’ll need to make the E is for elephant alphabet craft:
- Letter E template
- Glue sticks
- Googly eyes
- Construction paper
First, print the letter E template onto pink paper or regular computer paper. Cut out the template and use it to cut out as many Es as you need. Typically I can cut out about six at a time without messing up the design.
You’ll also want to cut out a trunk and an ear for each kid. I love this design because there are less things to cut out than some of our other alphabet crafts!
Each child will also need one googly eye.
Give the kids their Es, the ear, the trunk, and the eye. Draw a mouth on the center section of the E, and add the trunk to the top. Add the ear to the top left of the E and glue the eye to the side of the ear.
That’s it! Your letter E is now a beautiful pink elephant. Let the kids take them home, or display them in your classroom!
