Elephant Education Crafts

We're launching our new Website, Elephant Ears Education. So, I put the kids to work coming up with ideas of educational tools, learning aids and items we could even sell on the new Website. The idea is to come together as a family and make and sell our ideas and merchandise. In the process, we hope to help others learn and enjoy the process.

Here's what we made today. Which ones do you like?

Also, please check out the new Website. It's a work in progress, growing everyday. Let me know what you would like to see added.

You can find the new Website Here!

Welcome To Eliana's Elephant Ears Education

I have a daughter. We call her our miracle because she came to us after losing 3 pregnancies to miscarriage. She is our youngest child and keeps us hopping. From the time she was about 2 years old, she fell in love with elephants. The moment she laid her eyes on her very first WebKinz elephant, she was hooked. Now, she claims her mission is to go from thrift store to thrift store rescuing all of the elephants in the world. Our house needs an additional room to fill her collection.

Throughout the course of elephant collecting, it dawned on me how elephants have a huge (no pun intended) impact on learning.

They are said to never forget (memory is a part of learning)

They have large ears (listening plays an important role in learning)

And, there are probably countless other connections I have yet to discover. But, for the time being, this blog is being prepared to share learing in many forms. So, sit back, open your large elephant ears and get ready to add some education into your memory so you never forget...
