Elf Craft for Kindergarten with a Brown Paper Bag
As you implement a Christmas theme throughout your kindergarten lessons, practice fine motor and visual-spatial skills with our elf activity craft! This is a fun center project, or it might be completed as a whole-group activity. In our classroom, students enjoy pretending the elves are their special friends. They name their elves and take care of them, as they sit on their desks for the day. When students take them home, they make an adorable Christmas decoration!
Prior to starting the craft, prep a brown paper bag for each student. Loosely crumple a piece of scrap paper or newspaper, and place it inside of a brown paper bag. Twist the top of the bag to close it, and staple it to keep it closed.
Students color head. Students color circles (on page 4) red.
Cut out all pieces. Glue hat to top of head. Glue collar behind head.
Teacher staples head so it covers the twisted part of the bag.
Students then use liquid glue to attach the arms to the front of the bag. Glue legs so they hang off of the bag a bit.
