The Elf on the Shelf Clay Art Project

For some reason, I wanted for my kids to make Elf on a Shelf elves out of clay.  I thought it would be a fun project for them during the holiday season.  I knew it would be a little difficult, but with some teacher support and guidance, I felt pretty confident that my 8th grade artists could rock the project.  They have always been a very talented group of kids.


I kept the directions simple.  
I showed the kids some pictures of the Elf on a Shelf elves in different positions.
I told the kids to "own it" and some did just that.
Once they got the elves formed, I fired in the kiln.
Then, they painted with acrylic paint.
Then, I sprayed with clear coat a few times to get the elves shining!


I hope you like my shining elves.  Now here is "Shining Star" by Earth, Wind, and Fire.  If you like this song, God make you funky like these elves!
