Glue three sheets of newspaper on top of each other and let dry. When dry, cut out two ears for the elephant. Glue or staple the ears to the sides of the plate.

Make Elephant's Tusks

Cut a paper towel in half and twist each piece tightly. Glue the rolled paper towel pieces onto the elephant's face to make tusks.

Draw Elephant's Face

Draw eyes and a mouth on the elephant's face with a marker.

Wear Your Puppet

Put the sock on your child's hand and push it through the hole in the plate to make the elephant's trunk.
