Just an idea…

Year 4, I have just seen this idea online and I absolutely love it!

These elephants here are made out of used milk bottles and any scrap or coloured paper you may see around the house. Why not give it a go if you have any PVA glue, scrap paper and milk bottles lying around at home? I would love to see yours if you get a chance to try it!
