This is a cute idea, but I would feel so guilty wasting that much yarn on just the balls! One option would be to glue some yarn around Styrofoam balls for a similar look. A good craft for kids as it combines a number of different mediums. An adult would probably need to make the Elf hat. Adult supervision would also be needed for assembly using a hot glue gun.
