  • Step 1

    1. Tear your cardboard box down into smaller pieces.

  • Step 2

    2. Mix some gray paint and, with the brush "dry", paint your cardboard pieces. Let some of the brown show through and let dry.

  • Step 3

    3. Make an elephant shape with your pieces and tape down lightly. Glue the pieces together and let dry completely.

  • Step 4

    4. Turn the piece over and tape the back to help strengthen your elephant. Remove tape from the front.

  • Step 5

    5. Decide how you would like to add an eye: you can draw right on the cardboard, draw an eye on white paper and cut out and glue, or even use a button. Done!
