My seconds graders were so into Elf on a Shelf.  They loved making these 42″ elves.  The secret to their success was to present a part and complete it before going onto the  next.  We started with the shirt and pants.  Students were allowed to use 2 or 3 colors for the suit and hat.  We talked about their favorite sports teams, and how each part of the uniform repeated the same colors.  The next class focused on the face, ears, hands and shoes.  On the last day, students fit a special hat onto the head and decorated it with the their “team” colors.  We brainstormed elf jobs and students could add a tool, ribbon, present, etc. for their elf to hold.
