How to make the elf craft
My free elf craft template is easy to use as you craft this winter holiday.
Before you know it, your students will be mastering recognizing and writing their names and building upon their fine motor skills with ease. Here’s the step by step guide to creating your very own elf name craft for preschoolers.
Step One: Print
Click the link below to grab the free cut and paste Christmas craft for preschoolers and toddlers. Print the free elf craft on colored construction paper or use crayons to color it yourself.
We used traditional red and green for elves suits, but feel free to get creative and use whatever color you want. As for skin color, I find that this set of construction paper has plenty of options on different shades for your elves.
Step Two: Cut
When you’re done printing, grab your scissors because it’s now time to practice cutting skills. Cutting is such an important skill for this young age group, so try to let them do this part themselves, if possible.
It helps to strengthen their fine motor skills and helps to make each winter holiday craft look unique.
Step Three: assemble
You’ll love that this elf craft is not just festive, it’s another learning opportunity to teach names this Winter. Once you’re done, hang them around the room for the cutest DIY Christmas decorations or show them proudly on your Christmas bulletin board.
Isn’t this the cutest elf name craft for kids? Pair it with these elf puns, jokes, and riddles for more festive holiday fun.
