Children's spatial and natural intelligence is enhanced by this creative project when making elephants from inflated disposable gloves covered with gauze bandage. During this process, the children experience how to cover an inflated disposable glove with gauze bandage and then paint it to resemble an elephant. Children's spatial intelligence (image-wise) is enhanced when making models from gauze bandage and experiencing the effect of water on gauze bandage (nature-wise).
