Elmer's Special Day Synopsis

It's almost Elmer Day again for the elephants, and they have begun their preparations already. But in all the excitement they are making an awful lot of noise, and upsetting the other animals. So Elmer changes the rules, and invites every single animal to join in the parade. And they have a surprise in store for Elmer.

Andersen Press invites you join in the celebrations for Elmer Day! There are lots of events all over the country including craft days, dressing up and storytelling, and you can find what's going on near you on this special Elmer map.

You can download a Elmer’s Parade Pack here which includes craft activities, games, colouring sheets, bunting and lots of ideas for holding your own Elmer party.
