Day 12- Creation Station Christmas Countdown

Become a Christmas Elf 

Pssst… Santa needs his elves to help him get ready for Christmas, but where have they gone? Maybe they are hiding, they are a bit cheeky!

Maybe we could make Elves hats and pretend we are his Elves until he finds them!

For this we will need:

  • 4 Pieces of card ( 2 green, 1 red and 1 other desired colour for the ears)
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Double sided sticky tape (or glue)

Step One:

With your red card cut 2 long strips (approximately 3 cm wide) to make a head band. Stick the 2 ends of the strips together to create the head band the right size for your head. Place to one side.

Step Two:

Draw a large triangle on a piece of green card and cut out. It doesn’t matter if you can’t fit the top of the triangle on the card as you will add some decoration to the top of the hat.

Step Three:

Now with your double sided sticky tape put a strip on the band and tape the triangle to it.

Step Four:

With your remaining red card, along one of the long sides cut a zig zag pattern.


Step Five:

Now stick this on the front the green triangle. Then cut out a small red circle from the spare card from your head band and attach to the top of your hat.

Now for the final touch!

With the other piece of card, cut out 2 elf ears and stick them on the side!

You are now a elf!
