Trunky the milk carton elephant

This is Trunky. He's become my son's breakfast table companion. He was my friend Caroline's idea and he is incredibly simple to make. So simple that the only task kids have is to do is to decorate and give him a name.

All you need is an old 4 pint milk bottle (clean unless you want a funky Trunky), a glue stick and anything you want to decorate him with - we used squares cut out from a magazine to give him an Elmo like look. Simply cut off the top half of the milk bottle and hand to your child to get on with making themselves an elephant friend.


  1. This is actually really easy which is a rarity when it comes to kids crafts. Our three year old loved it

  2. Glad you like it. I think Herbie would happily make a herd of them
