No Sew Sock Elephant

How adorable is this elephant made from a sock? And how awesome is it that this is a no-sew project? Gather up the kiddos and whip some of these guys up with a tutorial courtesy of Kirsten at One Tough Mother, who recently featured a who week of zoo-inspired kids crafts on her blog. Ho fun would it be to make these at a slumber party? Use dollar store socks, or be even more thrifty and make dolls out of odd socks whose partners have been lost or have gotten holey!
