She began laying out these cute little hand cutouts they had made. I couldn’t help but
smother a laugh smile. What exactly are these I asked? Anteaters? Nooooo she explained they are elephants. I lost it then I really smiled then. They were hilarious. Here are some pictures of the best of the bunch.
My FAVORITE is the one with his tail on his trunk and eye on his…..wellllll other end. We laughed so hard I had tears rolling. I really do love the idea though wouldn’t they be cute with Horton Hatches An Egg for Dr. Seuss day? I wonder if my firsties from this year remember them from last year? I’ll have to find out I’ll let you know!
