Wednesday challenge - Elmer


Let's brighten up our world with a rainbow Elmer. You could draw it, paint it, collage it, make a milk bottle Elmer. Email photographs of your entries to Mrs McKinney through your year group email address or tweet your picture @StAlbans_Sch


For the milk carton Elmer

You need:

  • Empty plastic milk bottle containers
  • scissors
  • PVA glue
  • paint brush
  • brightly coloured tissue paper, sweet wrappers etc.
  • googly eyes
  1. Cut around the bottom of the milk bottle handle and continue around the bottle to create Elmers legs and trunk and begin covering the surface with pva glue.
  2. Stick tissue paper squares all over the “elephant” until he is completely covered. You could use sweet wrappers, newspaper, magazines, music manuscript anything you like, you can create your elephant.
  3. Once you have covered your elephant give it a coat of PVA to keep the paper nice and smooth and make it a little waterproof. Then you can add goodly eyes and draw or stick on ears and a tail.


Stay safe and take care
