Elmer

Elmer The Elephant

Tuesday 28th May, 1.30pm - 3.30pm, ages 3-5 (£20)

Elmer was different. Elmer was patchwork - he was yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue and green. With reference to the stories, let’s make our own patchwork Elmer and mix the colours to paint and print squares. He needs to have somewhere to live, so we will create a colourful jungle world too.
