Elephant and Piggie Christmas Ornaments

Elephant and Piggie Celebrate Christmas

We made Christmas ornaments inspired by our very favorite Elephant and Piggie books. These fun characters are a pleasure to have for some quality dramatic play for this kid! The most special ornaments on our Christmas tree make us smile - I suspect they might be treasured by this little reader later on.

Christmas ornaments inspired by children's books: links to more ideas and inspiration from this season's project "10 Days of a Kid-Made Christmas" can be found at the end of this article.


- We are going to have Christmas!
- Yes, Santa will come!
- He is so BIGGY- BIG- BIG-
- I CANNOT WAIT!
- Piggie!
- Yes, Gerald?

- I am SO HAPPY to go to the Christmas party WITH YOU!

Elephant and Piggie by Mo Willems

These books did wonders for this little reader: the love for reading and confidence, fluency and expression, comprehension and creativity. We have read the books in different settings: adult reading, child reading, adult and child, two children. Each book becomes even more fun every time they reread it.

It is hard to choose a favorite from this series. It could be "We Are in a Book!" as the reader becomes part of the story. It makes it engaging for kids. Amazon affiliate link: We Are in a Book! (An Elephant and Piggie Book)

As we are into dancing here, we found this book very funny: Elephants Cannot Dance! (An Elephant and Piggie Book)



Elephant and Piggie Christmas Ornaments

I love how our elephant and piggy are ornaments and dramatic play props for this Christmas season. They just can't stop talking and creating new stories: so fun!

For this ornaments we used:
  • clear plastic ornaments,
  • pink and blue construction paper,
  • ribbons, bows, tinsel to fill the ornaments,
  • a black Sharpie, tape, scissors.

We drew ears, a trunk, and a snout free hand and cut them out. We decided to use tape to attach the parts to the ornaments. Elephant's glasses: two white circles with the eyes drawn on them are placed on a piece of tape; the frames a drawn on tape with a Sharpie. Piggie's eyes and a mouth are drawn on the ornament.

  36. A gas grill is essential to complete any outdoor living space, but these outdoor cooking appliances don’t come cheap. A good gas grill can approach $1,000 or more, making adding one to the patio or deck a considerable investment. Luckily, there are plenty of quality gas grills for under $300. And while they may lack the aesthetics and the bells and whistles of higher-end models, they offer surprisingly similar performance. Grills at this price point range from large four-burner models to small portable gas grills for tailgating and camping.

  44. The Elephant and Piggie Christmas ornaments are a charming and well-crafted set of three, featuring bright colors and well-captured characters. The heartwarming and festive ornaments, particularly the one of the characters hugging under a mistletoe, are highly recommended for fans of the books. These durable and affordable ornaments are a great way to introduce children to the characters and add whimsy to your Christmas tree.motorcycle accident attorney
