Little ones will love creating one or more of these fun elf crafts, and you’ll love the opportunity for strengthening scissor skills and fine motor skills while they get creative.
These paper crafts are great for both toddlers and preschoolers. If you’re completing these crafts with toddlers, you can precut the paper shapes for your little ones. Older preschoolers can do it themselves to strengthen fine motor muscles.
