The kids got in on the act

My sons are now 12 and 14 and a little "old" technically for ours, but they love the tradition. This year, I told them that dad and I wanted them to do some elf related stuff...

I came downstairs this morning to find Elfis sitting on the stove (yes it was off) holding a frying pan. In the frying pan was poor Mr. Potato Head. A note along side Elfis said, "Now THAT'S what I call a fritata!"

Another idea --

AC Moore has this mini pancake pan. It makes three pancakes with Christmas patterns. Think I'm going to pick that up this week and sometime between now and Christmas have Elfis make the boys green and red pancakes in it.

I know this is an older thread, but it popped up when I googled elf ideas... I didnt read through all the posts yet but wanted to share what we did last night for anyone stumped...
Jeffrey made snowmen out of mini powdered sugar donuts (donut holes or marshmallows would work too) stacked 3 high..
faces and buttons made with black gel decorating icing, and a hershey kiss for a hat (wrapped)... then he wrote on the paper plate To ___ Love, Jeffrey and put a clear drinking glass over the snowmen to keep them fresh- then used the glass for milk in the morning My little one was so giggly and giddy about that this morning. Wish I could upload a picture- maybe I can try tonight from my home computer
Jeffrey will also be fishing for goldfish crackers in a bowl, building a lincoln log fort and decorating DD's dollhouse with special Christmas decorations (mini tree, wreaths etc) this weekend
Hope this helps someone... happy elfing!

Painted the girls noses red, (we have a lice issue right now) so today he is sitting with a plastic bag over his read reading lice instructions, sitting in barbies car, playing with the barbies, playing on the computer, stuck in the candy jar. After 7 years I feel like we have done it all already, over feed the cat, built or taken apart legos, made a mess with multiple board games. When there is snow, has gone sledding in Bitty Babies's winter coat.

Thanks for popping this back up! I need to review for some ideas. Mine are technically too old too - DS10 & DD12 but they both pleaded for the elves to come visit them again this year. We are late to the elf game because they just showed up last year.

Yesterday, our elves took some glow sticks and hid in a cabinet with them on. I hid the elves last night where they can't find them because I couldn't think of a good idea - I'll have to review this thread for some!

Let's see... our elf has:

* decorated his own tree and gotten tangled in the lights
* made his own hot chocolate with an ENTIRE bag of marshmallows on top
* tried to brush his teeth but squirted toothpaste all over the counter instead
* unrolled tp and got stuck in the cardboard roll
* flew daddy's helicopter and got it stuck on the lampshade
* rode to church with us (he was buckled and brought his little bible)
* tried to feed the cats but dumped over the bag instead
* drew himself into the family photo over the fireplace (use dry erase, wipes right off)
* packed my DD's lunch but got stuck in the top of her lunch box
* did DD's math homework but got all the answers wrong!
* tried to blow dry my DD's AG doll's hair
* took a bath in the AG doll's bath tub, used a loofah and bar of soap

Olaf and Sven arrived again on the 1st and brought Star Wars crazy DGrD last years SWLego advent calendar (with a note from Santa saying they saved one for her when they got back to the North Pole - I know , I'm cheap - this way they can always bring the last year's calendar and I can pay 1/2 price LOL)
Needless to say she was THRILLED !! She has joined in on the elf fun this year - saying "Oma, come see what those crazy elves did when I fell asleep for ten minutes" - I think she's on to me, but she still LOVES it and now there's another little cousin who will soon enjoy our joint elf antics.

So far this year, the elves have:
=Joined many SW legos figures in flying the lego millenium falcon to the top of the China cabinet in the dining room
=played a game of scrabble making lots of their fav christmas words (we are a big scrabble family) including DGrDs name and their names
=had a sleepover with the American Girl dolls in their bed and the girls were reading them a book about Santa
=joined a new Barbie in her bathtub for a mini marshmallow bath
=had a drive in movie on the coffee table with a huge assortment of dolls/toys/lego figures and many crazy vehicles. they were watching a new copy of Prep and Landing.
=climbed into the copy machine and made copies of themselves holding little heart shaped signs saying 'i love (DGrD)' 'I love (DGrD) too'
Only their little legs and feet were hanging out. Took her a while to find them that day. lol
=opened and put together one of her advent legos

DGrD is getting a new camera from us this year and I'm going to have them take some 'good bye' pics of themselves on her camera before I wrap it

I've gotten lots of great ideas from Pinterest.
