Elmer the elephant
If Elmer is a favourite with your youngster, turn an old milk carton into this too-cute character.
Cut the top third from a clean four-pint milk carton, making sure there are no jagged edges.
Glue squares of coloured tissue paper onto the carton.
When dry, draw on a pair of eyes with a felt-tip pen.
Glue or tape the lid on securely.
