2019 Last Minute Elf Shenanigans
DIY Elf Straw Ladder
This was our elf arrival this year. Josie showed up climbing a ladder trying to get inside a giant box of Twix candy bars. I purchased this box of a dozen Twix bars at Walmart.
To make the ladder, simply cut straws to size and hot glue them together. I found that paper straws are more sturdy than plastic straws.
Elf in a Bowl of Cereal
Another Walmart find, I had to try this Elf on the Shelf cereal. Of course, you can use any cereal. Our elf showed up sitting inside a bowl full with spoon and set the table for the kids for their breakfast.
Dinosaur Wrecks Gingerbread House
My kids made gingerbread houses at their Grandmother’s house. After a few days, the houses went half eaten and forgotten about. So, on this day, a dinosaur showed up wrecking the remains of their gingerbread houses.
Elf on a Horse
For sure a Last Minute Elf Shenanigan…enough said.
Everyone Poops Elf
I didn’t make a printable for this one because, I didn’t make the design, but here’s how you make it yourself.
- Google “Everyone Poops” in Google Images.
- Save the image on your computer and add it to a Word Document.
- Resize it and cut and fold into a mini book.
I went a bit further and added the back of the book as well as some pages inside. Josie showed up in a clear glass with chocolate chips on the bottom reading her Everyone Poops book.
I See London I see France Printable
I used a clip magnet and a pair of the kid’s underwear for this one. I had to pin Josie’s head onto the underwear because her head kept falling forward. The sign says, “I see London, I see France, I am stuck in your underpants.”
You can get your free printable here: I See London FREE Printable.
Elf Ugly Sweater Dress
Josie got into my left-over craft supplies and made an Ugly Sweater Dress. Here is what you need to make one:
- Felt Scraps
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
I raided my craft supplies for this one. It took me less than five minutes and was fun to make. I decided to make a tube top dress because it was quick and easy. It also doesn’t need to be perfect; it’s ugly after all!
I hope you like these new ideas! Here are free more FREE printables I have shared in the past:
