12 Elmer the Elephant crafts to celebrate Elmer Day

12 crafts to celebrate Elmer Day

My children love Elmer the Patchwork Elephant. He is a loveable character with an important message for children (and adults too!) – “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”.  We had so much fun painting our ceramic elephant to look like Elmer!

The first Elmer Day will be held on May 28th 2016. There are events all over the country to celebrate and I have brought together 12 of my favourite Elmer the Elephant crafts to help celebrate Elmer Day.

    I didn’t know there will be an Elmer Day, what a great idea. Will have to think of how to mark it with my guys, as we’re very fond of Elmer. Many thanks for including the links to my posts!
