This is one of my all-time favorite winter craftivities! I love incorporating art with writing. Even more, I LOVE incorporating student pictures. This one has all three combined into one!
For this activity we read a few books about Elves and Christmas. Then I have my students turn themselves into an elf! I take a 4x6 picture of their face and print them out. They color the elf head and then I cut the circles out for their faces and tape on their pictures.
I have my students write about what they would do if they were an elf, but I have included three other writing prompts to meet your needs.
When the writing and craft are complete, I glue the elf head to the top of the writing to make an adorable display.
Have fun! :)
