4. Twist the bottom part of the two longer pipe cleaner pieces together to create a tree trunk with branches in the upper portion. Twist the two cut pipe cleaner pieces around the first ones to create additional branches. Cut the third pipe cleaner into three or four pieces to complete your tree.

5. Using a model if you wish, draw an elephant silhouette on the black Fun Foam and cut it out.

6. Glue the elephant at the bottom of your sunset scene, to the right.

7. Next, glue the tree trunk next to the elephant silhouette. Avoid gluing the branches so that they stand out, giving your collage a three-dimensional look.


Note: With very young children, you can prepare all the pieces ahead of time and simply let them glue them in place.
