elves shoemaker 

Look at these cute elf hats!  Cindy Williams and her gang at Philbrook Art Museum came up with this great craft activity for Second Saturday.  I am so taking this idea to my classroom this week!

I took a photo of the instructions!  Use a large piece of construction paper (12×18).

I found a free e-book this wonderful tale and it is one of my favorite illustrated versions!  Check out this website:

Thanks to Eileen at the Little Acorn Learning Blog, you can read the Brothers Grimm's version.  It is the original tale.

Here is an adorable youth production by the Mason Youth Theater of this story.  I love to have my class act out the stories!
