My girls favorite time of the year is definitely Christmas. They love all things Santa, reindeer, nutcrackers, and, of course, elves! Their love of elves definitely came from their own Elf, Criddle. Although she doesn’t get into too much mischief, she has definitely spread holiday cheer for the 10 years we’ve had her!

Even though my girls aren’t preschoolers anymore, they love to make Christmas crafts and they’ve made a few of these elf crafts themselves over the years. So, to share the elf love, I’m sharing with you and your little ones so you can get into the holiday spirit too!
