Elf on the Shelf Elves (and a super fun Freebie, too!)

We have the best custodian ever and I mean it!  He just loves the children and will go above and beyond his duties as the custodian to make their school experience incredible.  My neighbor and I both decided to make our classroom elves appear on the same day and we enlisted our custodian to deliver the cold packages.  But, before making the deliveries, he got up on the roof and made quite a racket up there (seriously, not sure what he was doing, but it even made a ceiling tile fall out!).  It alarmed the children, but we continued on with our day.  Before we knew it, he was in the room delivering a package from the North Pole.  The children excitedly surmised that the noise must have been Santa dropping off the packages. And so began the adventures of our newest class member, Binky (the name given to our she elf by our class):
We read the book, along with the letter that gave them  a clue to look up high to find their new elf:

My friend Jennifer at Simply Kinder made the elves with her students.  I love how they colored their elves.  We usually use colored construction paper (sometimes even holiday colored scrapbook paper), but these are great!
Now, to reveal the HUGE elves we made yesterday and how I would break this project down into steps:



Now, how to get the pattern for these HUGE elves is easy, just click on the pic below for more information.  Then, scroll down a bit further to grab the Elf on the Shelf puzzle I made for you FREE:

Don't forget about the elf in the classroom linky party tomorrow. The traffic is insane already from last years linky! I will post the link in here in a bit to link up before it goes live tomorrow.
