Today our Elf went fishing. We fashioned a fishing pole from some yarn and a candy cane. We then attached a goldfish cracker to the end of the "fishing line" using a drop of glue. As a final touch we tossed a hand full of goldfish crackers into the toilet.
**Be sure to thoroughly clean the toilet before placing your Elf on it. We also wedged him between the seat back and bottom, so that he would not fall into the toilet.
This morning we woke up to find our Elf camping in our computer room.
We made the camp fire using an electric tea light, green yarn, and some twigs. The tent was fashioned using a piece of green construction paper, and three popsicle sticks. You can use the images below to see how the camp fire and tent are made.
Today we found our Elf pretending to be a coffee cup. For this one we used a "venti" cup and lid. To affix the lid to our Elf's head, we poked two holes in the side of the lid and threaded some yarn through each hole, then tied the thread at the Elf's chin (creating a bonnet). We then stuffed him into the cup. Some other fun ideas are posted below, using a "sample" cup. We had the Elf hold the "sample" cup by attaching it with a piece of rolled tape.
