Elfing Around: Elf Crafts, Snacks & Lessons

There are Christmas elves burning up the internet this year.  Every time I log in to Facebook a friend is sharing pictures of the crazy tricks their house elves are up to.  Inspired by the silly little Santa's helpers I did my own search for fun elf ideas to share with you today.
Gourmet Mom put together a clever snack, sure to fire up your child's imagination - Elf Tinker Toys.
Crazy for Crust mixed up a batch of Elf Munch and shares the printable with you for gift giving.
Teaching Two shared an elf inspired writing activity - Elf Applications has several online elf activities and games for your little ones to enjoy.

Cackleberries gives a step by step tutorial on How to Draw an Elf. explained the following elf themed game:
Santa & the Elves - One student is “it” and sits with his back to the rest of the group. The teacher chooses one “elf” to hide. Santa turns around and tries to guess which elf is missing.

This Elf Project lesson written for third graders intends to excite young writers.

Mrs. Russell's Class followed up their reading of The Elves and the Shoemaker with a cute elf craft.

The Pike Fam used their adorable little hands to make elf prints.
