Day 21 - Elf Goes Camping
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.
Day 19 - Elf in a Cup (Elf'bux)
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.
Day 18 - Elf and the Doughnuts
Today we incorporated our Elf Table from yesterday's post to hold our Elf Doughnuts. We made the doughnuts by covering cheerios with frosting, and then dipping them in sprinkles. They were actually pretty good, and were a small sweet snack for the kids when they discovered them.
Day 14 - Elf and the Band-aids
This was a quick and easy one. We simply covered our Elf in band-aids to mimic our childrens adoration for them. How funny it was, for them to find their little Elf friend covered in band-aids, just like them.
