If you’re a fan of Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss then this Paper Plate Horton Hears a Who Craft is a great craft to make together. We didn’t forget the clovers, too!
You could be like my littlest son, too, and just completely enthralled with elephants. This is a great craft for that reason, as well. Make it because you like elephants. Make it because you love Dr. Seuss. Make it because you like both!

Paper Plate Elephant Craft Step by Step Instructions
Begin by painting a paper plate.
We painted ours blue, but you could also paint it grey. Let it dry completely.
Then, cut out the middle bottom and top of the painted plate.
Glue the ends of the cut out sections together to make the trunk.
Snip a small slit into the end of the trunk.
Next, cut two small ovals from the white paper and then two slightly smaller ovals from the black paper.
Glue the black ovals in the center of the white ovals to make Horton’s eyes.
And glue the eyes to the middle of the plate and the trunk to the bottom center.
Now, cut a paper straw in half and glue a pom pom to the top.
Slide the clover in the slot of the trunk. Horton is now ready!
