Funny story about these little elves, we started crafting to make santa clause but the girls changed their mind and wanted to make elves! Therefore we have a santa belly and an elf hat. To make it better you could add elf ears or santa's white beard. This takes quite a bit of prepping so be prepared to help the kiddos!
- Card stock paper
- Black marker
- Paper plate
- Tissue paper
Have the kids cover a paper plate with glue (using a wide paintbrush) and stick on cut up pieces of red tissue paper. Cut out an elf hat shape and have them cover that as well.
Make some belt pieces and glue it over the elves bellies. Make a circle for the elves head and have them paint it a tan color.
Cut out some shoes, mittens, and eyes for the elves. Tape each piece together really well on the back and the front. The bigger elf was really heavy so it kept bending backwards but it looked great hanging up in the window!
