With the holidays approaching, many of us will be traveling. Our little Elf'ish friends will surely want to come too. Here is a cute way to let your kids know that their Elf is along for the ride. We used a small jewelry box and a metallic pipe cleaner to create a little suitcase for our Elf.
Here's the messiest one (we promise). For this one we used about 1.5-2 cups of flour. We spread the flower in an even layer across the table, then laid our elf in the middle of the flour. We then pushed his legs and arms from side to side, to mimic the movements made when creating a snow angel. Afterwards we posed the elf nearby so that the children would find him.
Today our little Elf decided to take a selfie... It was a lot of fun for the kids to find him in the photocopier. I think we might just post his portrait on the refrigerator.
Here's a cute way to incorporate pets. We have a Dalmatian mix and a Harlequin Great Dane, so we decided to use a hole punch to create black spots and put them on our elf. We stuck the spots using (very sparingly) a glue stick. They came off easily, and there isn't a lot of residue.
*This can easily be incorporated for any pet.
The kids loved this one! We used a "Tickle Me Cookie Monster", and a couple of Starbucks cookies. As a bonus, their Elf may be willing to share his cookies.
Here's one that would work best for older kids. You'll need 9 mini-marshmallows and glitter pens. We set up a loosing game, but you can place them however you would like.
*For younger kids, consider using food coloring or frosting pens to create an edible game.
