Just like elephants, hands march in pairs, two by two… here’s a quick and easy crafty one for pre-schoolers.  Simply turn their hand prints into elephants with the help of a black marker like this one:

Hand Print Elephant

Here’s how, make the handprints and allow to dry.  With the handprint upside down:

1.  Outline the trunk
2.  Draw an ear, an eye and a tail
3.  Add some toes at the bottom of his legs / the other fingers

Thumb prints also make cute baby elephants to make a herd.  Here’s the herd that Diva G created.
