Make an elephant using a plastic milk bottle
Empty CLEAN plastic milk bottle (ideally a 4 pint size)
Stick on google eyes
Anything to decorate - you can either paint your elephant or use glue to stick on fabric/paper etc
Cut the top half of the milk bottle using the handle as a trunk & then cut arches on all four sizes to make legs - you can do this freehand or you can draw on some guidelines beforehand (see file uploads for an idea of how to cut the elephant)
Once you have made your elephant shape you can decorate it how you like!
