Salt Dough Elephant

See directions for making salt dough from the crafts section of The GuideZone.

Make the body into a large egg shape. Make a smaller egg shape for the body and attach it so that it is at an angle to the body (as if it it looking down). Make sausage like rolls for the legs - the back legs should be slightly shorter and fatter than the front legs. Make another roll for the trunk, and two smaller, thinner rolls for the tusks. Use a longer, thinner roll for the tail. Use two small rectangular(ish) shapes for the ears.

Find pictures of Indian animals for the color scheme for painting.
