Five Elephants Went Out to Play

This is a remake of an old foam set I've had for years.  This time I made my elephants much bigger, and I have two poems/rhymes to use with them (and they could also go along with my bathtub from Five Elephants in a Bathtub)




Here they are all lined up on a string...


One grey elephant balancing
Step by step on a piece of string 
He thought it was such a wonderful stunt 
That he called for another elephant 

Two grey elephants etc... 

Five grey elephants balancing
Step by step on a piece of string 
They thought it was such a wonderful stunt
That they called for another elephant.

(and then make them all tip off the string and fall--kersplat!--to the ground!


And here they are atop a spider's web (which here is made of paper, but I'll use black fabric paint on a white sheet of felt for the final product).




      One elephant went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day.
He had such enormous fun,
He called for another elephant to come… “Oh, ELEPHANT!”

Two elephants…
Three elephants…
Four elephants…

Five elephants went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day.
They had such enormous fun
But there were no more elephants left to come.

Or:
The web went creak, the web went crack.
And all of the elephants went KERSPLAT!
