Elephant Mosaic: easy toddler craft

Another rainbow themed craft for this week – a colourful elephant mosaic, inspired by our patchwork friend, Elmer.

Download the printable elephant mosaic activity for a really easy toddler craft – all you need is a printer, scissors and glue!

When I designed this craft I thought I would have to cut the mosaic tiles up for Rosalie, but when she saw the sheet she wanted to have a go herself. Ultimately I did cut them up for her, but it was great that she wanted to get some scissor practice in.

You could also use the mosaic elephant template with different materials, I think tissue paper, felt or foam squares would all work well and make a lovely picture. Or of course you could just colour them in.

Once I’d cut up the squares (and a few triangles) Rosalie made her elephant totally independently. Well, she might have had a bit of help from Little Grey Elephant!
