Create an Elfie Selfie!

This is a great craft activity where students create their very own ‘Elfie Selfie’. The download includes several templates to suit your students’ capabilities.

Students can decorate the full elf body and glue their photo in the spot provided, or they can use body parts to put the elf together. Let them get creative and use buttons, cotton balls, oil pastels, felt pieces, and more to create their elf!

Do you have students that don’t celebrate Christmas? You may like to check out this Create a ‘Selfie’ Template.

Introducing the Funky Elf Template

After the success of many of our other funky craft templates, such as the Funky Reindeer Template, we couldn’t help ourselves and have created a Funky Elf Craft Template.

Students use different patterns to fill in the various sections of the elf. Then, they choose from a range of funky accessories (glasses, holly, presents, speech bubbles, and a hanging ornament) to complete their Christmas creation!

For those students who don’t celebrate Christmas, why not use our Funky Snowman Craft Template or our Funky Gingerbread Craft Template instead.

Roll to Create an Elf

Your students will have a great time drawing their very own elf using our Roll an Elf Template.

Instructions:

  1. Roll the die. Match the number rolled to a row on the chart, and see which feature is in the ‘1st Roll’ column. Draw it onto a blank piece of paper.
  2. Roll again. Match the number to a row on the chart, and see which feature is in the ‘2nd Roll’ column. Add this element to your drawing.
  3. Continue in this same manner until you have all five elements of your elf drawn.
  4. Give your elf a name, and write it above your drawing.
  5. Write a narrative text that includes your elf as the main character.
