Book Craft: “Elmer and The Rainbow”

This easy craft is perfect for younger Girl Scouts (or younger siblings) and is a great follow-up to “Elmer and The Rainbow” by David McKee.

Materials Needed:

  1. Glue

  2. Scissors

  3. White paper or colored construction paper- If construction paper is not available, shapes can be drawn on white paper and colored.

  4. Markers

You will need:

Elephant body and ear. Save scrap paper to cut out rainbow shape.

Draw a grid on the elephant’s body for the patchwork design. Color each square with a different color. Draw an eye in any square close to elephant’s head.

Cut out an elephant body and ear. Glue together. Using white paper scrap, draw and cut out a colorless rainbow.

Once dried, draw background features. Surround Elmer with bright colorful trees, flowers, and grass!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
