Here is a fun one to get the kids involved in a little "Elf Morale". Print out the letter from Santa (or write your own), and display it with your elf. Have pre-cut snowman eyes, nose, and pipe cleaner arms ready. You can place them next to your elf, put them in a jewelry box, or even inside a small Tupperware container. Assist children in reading the letter from Santa, and then in constructing their snowman. For smaller children, it may be easier to glue the snowman to a piece of paper, while older children might enjoy creating a "stuffed animal" for their Elf.
