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.
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.
