See What Teachers Are Saying About Elf Yourself Craft and Writing Activity:

❤️ My students loved this activity! It was so cool to watch their enjoyment while completing this activity. I was very proud of how much creativity they were able to put into their writing and the students being able to elf themselves was the icing on the cake! (Used with 2nd grade)

❤️ This was such a hit! The students colored the pages and we laminated them and put their picture in the middle. We added it in the hallway but then we decided to loop a string to it and the students were able to take them home as a tree ornament! (Used with 3rd grade)

❤️ My students have never been more excited to write. As soon as I passed out the writing paper, students immediately started writing and were so excited to read what they wrote to me. This was so much fun and I can't wait to do it again! (Used with 2nd grade)

❤️ These are hilarious. I printed 4 to a page to shrink them down, put my high-school students' faces in them, laminated them, and hung them on our classroom Christmas tree. They loved it. Thanks! (Used with High School)
