It is that time of year again. It is time to break out the Christmas decorations, send out your Christmas cards and put on your favorite carols. It is also time to bring that sneaky little elf out of hiding. We started the Elf on the Shelf tradition last year when we thought Mai was old enough to enjoy him. This year unfortunately, poor little Koontz (the name Mai picked for him) is locked away in storage waiting for our house to be finished.
It will probably be another couple of weeks or so until we can set the little guy free, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been thinking about him.
Footprint Elf On The Shelf
As always all of our footprint crafts start with a painted foot. Paint the heel of your child’s foot in flesh tone & the rest in red.
Add arms & a triangle about the head for his hat.
Paint in the hair.
And then add the fur to the hat, collar & white gloves.
Draw in the face and a little shelf and it is almost as good as having the real thing. Just kidding, Koontz! We are coming for you soon.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Have to bring out our Elf tonight here and love this idea to go along with it!! 🙂
