Madeleine wanted to make this elephant on a cloth banner, but it would look so darling on a brightly colored piece of paper!

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Mosaic Indian Elephant

If you don't have mosaic tiles, you can easily cut some! We used some foam sheets with a peel-back sticky on one side, and some plain foam sheets with a glue stick. We had some that were sparkly, and Maddie thought they made a splendid saddle!

I asked Madeleine if she wanted to draw the elephant, or wanted me to. She said me, so I looked for a simple pattern, and drew it on her banner.

She had the tiles spread out a bit on the table, and went to work. She was thrilled over the sparkly ones!

I showed her that she could line the elephant's ear with sparkly silvers to make a little definition. "My fingers are sticky!" I complained. "Mine, too. That's all part of the fun, Sister!" she assured me.

Soon the tiles were filled in to her satisfaction. "Here are some crown pieces I found," I offered. "Ooh, this pink heart is perfect!" "And here are some feathers..."

He's all finished. And isn't he grand!?!
