How to make craft

  • On the white cardboard draw the ears and the trunk of the elephant. Make sure they are big enough having in mind that the toilet paper roll is going to be the body of the elephant.
  • Cut the drawn parts using scissors. Glue the trunk and the ears on the toilet paper roll.
  • Now you need to paint the elephant. Take grey color and start covering the elephant. If you are not able to find grey color you can easily create it yourself by combining white and a little bit of black color. Paint the elephant and let it dry completely.
  • At the end you just need to glue the eyes to the elephant.
  • You can also curl the trunk a little to make it look more realistic.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
