India: Painted Elephant Craft

Did you know that every year an Elephant Festival is held in India that includes a parade of brightly decorated elephants? Elephants are celebrated and revered in Indian Culture. In this activity, Little Explorers will have the opportunity to decorate their own elephants while developing fine motor skills. This is a perfect activity for individual children or entire classrooms!

All you need for this craft are crayons, watercolor paint, and the elephant template! Download the template and the full directions in the India section of the Resource Library!

We would love to see your Little Explorers' creations! Please tag us at @littleexplorersbigworld on Instagram for a chance to be featured on our stories!
