Time to Stomp like an Elephant

It is always fun to learn about elephants because it gets you up and stomping. 
Stomp your feet.
Swish your tail.
Blow your trunk.

One of my favorite songs:
One Elephant Went Out To Play (Action Song)
Choose one child to come to the middle of your circle and chant:
One elephant went out to play
Up on a spider's web one day
He/she had such ENORMOUS fun
He/she called for another elephant come. (Have the child invite a classmate to join them).
Continue until all your little elephants are in the center. I put painter's tape on the floor to represent the "spider'web".  The little ones loved it!

The craft was done with white and black paint mixed together to make gray.  The kids loved watching the white paint disappear.  They sponge painted the elephant shape.
