Milk Bottle Elmer

Defne has been reading Elmer books at school and was asked to design or draw  an Elmer as her homework.
Inspired from Pinterest, we made this milk bottle Elmer together.

We took a half pint sized milk bottle,cut it off . Next Defne  sticked tissue paper using watered down glue.

Then she added googly eyes, ears and a tail! As a 5 year old girl, she had to use pink a lot :)

She loved her Elmer and played with it and was very proud to show to her teacher.

We don't drink cow's milk so I wasn't aware of the different bottle types but I later realised a bigger and a curvier bottle would create nicer Elmers :)
