Elves on Holiday
Overview
Elves work tirelessly throughout the year, helping Santa make toys for all the children of the world. But what happens when Christmas Day has passed and the elves have no more work to do? In this 3-day Christmas creative writing and publishing workshop, students will have the chance to think about how the elves spend their vacation time. Where do they go on holiday and what do they do there?
