Cut out a head, a trunk, tusks, and ears from felt. Glue them together, then glue the head to thin cardboard. Add wiggle eyes. Glue the head to the can.
For feet, glue four felt circles to the base. Add a felt tail.
Cut out 20 peanuts from cardstock. Add lines with a marker.
Cut out 28 cards from cardstock. Write P, E, A, N, U, and T on four cards each, one letter per card. Print Miss This Turn on two cards and Any Letter on the final two cards.
How to Play
Give each player five peanuts. Shuffle the cards. Players take turns drawing cards until they can spell PEANUT. Once they do, they place a peanut into the can. Create a discard pile for used cards and reshuffle them to make another deck. The first player to feed all of his or her peanuts to the elephant wins.
