Elephant Collage Remix

I did the same Eric Carle inspired elephant collage project with my 2nd kindergarten class with a few changes. Instead of newspaper we used black construction paper with 3 different tints of gray. To create texture we used bubble wrap, cardboard and spikey rubber balls. For some added whimsy and color I have a butterfly punch that they can use with scraps of brightly colored textured paper.


  1. I am in love with this! I can't wait to do it with my students!!!

  2. These are so great! I never did an 'Eric Carle' lesson, but should have I suppose ;) Thanks for this post, you convinced me!

  3. cute! Did you have an elephant template for them to trace or did you teach them how to draw them?

  4. Elephant pictures are such a big hit with the kids. Adding the textural element is
    a nice touch! Thanks for the post!
