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.
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 a silly one that only takes a few minutes to complete. We replaced out family photos, with pictures of our mischievous little friend. You can either replace the photos, or print photos and tape them to the glass in the frame.
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.
Feeling a little mischievous? Here's a fun one. We filled a small Tupperware with mini chocolate chips, and posted a little sign for all to see, "Free Reindeer Poop". We have provided you with a template for the sign, below. Just print it, cut it out, and glue it to a Popsicle stick. TADA!
**If you would like a healthier alternative, consider raisins.
Here's a fun little play for an Elf. Just grab a cup, or bowl, some Fruit Loops, and a pipe cleaner. We chose to curl the end of our pipe cleaner, just to add a little flair.
