The Littlest Elf

the littlest Christmas elf

Yesterday was elf day here at the Hoggatt homeschool. Which was fitting since our elves decided to be a little naughty and act up by decoratiing our classroom a litle crazy!

We started off the day by reading the Golden Book “The Littlest Christmas Elf”. This is a great book that helps the kids see that even though they are small they can still have an important roll in their families if they use their gifts.

After our story we made the Elf Shoe craft found in the Dec. Funshine Express, Fireflies kit. The kids had a good time designing, decorating and cutting out their shoes. After they were finished they make a great Christmas ornament for the class tree, or a gift for grandma/grandpa.  I like how Funshine activities hide in all kinds of fine motor activities within their crafts. The kiddos don’t even notice that they are learning while they are having so much fun!

Our day couldn’t be complete without making some elf hats! Here is how we did it…

Cut out 1 hat pattern, 1 border patter, and 1 pair of ears per child. (see templates below)

Have them decorate as they wish. Then assemble by making a cone out of the hat pattern. Attach the border and ears. Finally punch holes and add string to tie under their chins.
