My Halloween Witch Feet project prompted one of my readers to suggest elf feet for the holidays. Thank you, whoever you are, as it was a great idea and I’m working it into all my 2nd and 3rd grade classes this week.
1. Students draw a light vertical center line to help space the two legs apart. They followed along as I drew the shoes in small segments, i.e.: right heel, left heel, right arch, left arch, right toe, left toe, and so on. When the shoes were complete, legs and clothes were added above.
2. The pencil lines were traced with a black marker.
3. Students could design and fill in the clothes of their elf with markers. A blank background is recommended to keep the interest on the elf.
