Make this Elephant Puppet out of a paper plate and construction paper.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Paint a paper plate gray. Let it dry.

Cut two large ear shapes out of the construction paper and glue them into place. Glue on two wiggle eyes. Let the glue dry.

Finally, cut out a big circle in the center of the plate where the nose would be. To use your puppet, simply slip your arm through the hole. It will look like the elephant's trunk!
