This is one that I can not take credit for! One of the other moms in the group I run, took this on as her own, and boy was it cute! We made this elephant craft. It was a print out, but you could make it yourself. There were two circles for the ears, a circle for the face, 2 ovals for the eyes, 2 tusks, and a long rectangle for the trunk. The kids colored all the pieces, D wanted hers a pink elephant, and then we had them glue the pieces together. Oh and what is that as the back of the elephant, none other than a old, used CD. You know you have some old ones either for computer programs, or horrible music! All of this was then glued onto a large popsicle stick so the kids could use them as puppets.
All the children were also encouraged to bring a stuffed or toy elephant. We listened to a few songs and did the elephant walk around the room with our toys. We also listened to a very nice book. The book we read was Big Little Elephant by Valeri Gorbachev.
