This is a fun and engaging all-in-one activity to celebrate the holiday season for preschool, pre-K and Kindergarten.
Group game and creative activity directions: This is just one way to use these great elf pieces – be creative. This activity is for a small group of young children.
Leave the elf bodies pages whole, and cut out the other pieces. Have one elf for each child, and enough other pieces to give choices with a few left over. Have the children sit in a circle on the floor, with the elf pages spread out in the middle.
Introduce the elves by their names. Each child chooses the one they want, taking turns saying “I would like _______” by name, or “I would like this elf”. (The elves names are Glitterpie, Gingerplum, Shinysparkles and Jinglesocks).
Then put the elf clothes in the center of the circle, and each child chooses “I would like a green and red tunic that has stripes”, “I would like black elf shoes” etc until everyone has the pieces they want. Encourage descriptive words, and help with different descriptive ideas.
Presents page: Use the presents to extend the activity – each child chooses a present for their elf.
Then they go to the table, and paste together their elf, clothes and presents.
4 coloring pages extension: Children choose the elf they want to decorate (with markers, crayons, collage materials etc.) and make up a name for their elf.
