DLTK's Holiday Crafts for Kids
elf craftElf Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

The large paper craft makes a very nice wall hanging decoration for Christmas time.  It also makes a nice centerpiece for a classroom bulletin board with children's Christmas poems or artwork hung around it.

If doing a Christmas poem with this paper craft, you can make an ELF acrostic poem on a 4" square of paper (I love acrostic poems!) and have the elf hold it in his hands.

You can attach the arms and legs with brass fasteners ("brads") instead of glue if you want them to be movable.
