Patchwork Elephant

Patchwork Elephant
The library is J's most favourite place to visit in the whole wide world.

We often go to the local library for story-time sessions. J gets a chance to sit in the kids area and browse through lots of books. He gets to read new ones while he is there. Rather, he gets to listen while I read aloud to him. He gets to choose a couple to take home as well. And he gets little stamps in his Bookstart bear passport.

The story sessions are brilliant for me too. For once, somebody else does the reading aloud while I can just sit and listen. Each session finishes with a bit of craft work for the little ones. 

No prizes for guessing what we read this week. Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, of course!

J and I had a fun time creating our own patchwork elephant. We even got to stick on some shiny snowflakes for added effect.

  4. If you are into crafting, you could make an Elmer using milk bottles. See http://sparklepetal.wordpress.com/2011/10/12/milk-bottle-elmer-the-elephant-tutorial/
    I made a couple of baby toys for Sid out of bottles and craft foam. Let me know if you need ideas
