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:
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.

My name is Claire and I like to look at craft rather than make it! Ha ha! Well it’s true, I admire crafts, children’s and grown ups but I do virtually none. Last week Lil H was at a friends for tea after school which gave Diva G and I extra afternoon time with no school run to do. I decided to let her finger paint. I was nervous, my “mess-dar” was on max, but nothing happened that didn’t wipe up.
We made some handprints and G did lots of squishing paint in her hands and rubbing it on paper. When dried I cut the and prints out and the paintings into flower stem and leaf shapes and voila! Mothers Day cards. These will be off to Grand & God Mothers this year.
What do you think? Handmade cards rock, yes?

This was our Easter card last year. It’s a super simple idea and thought I’d share with the Choc Fest Imminent!
