Elf Astronaut Ideas

Can you believe it? How does our elf know that we have a completely space and NASA obsessed boy in this house? Oboe somehow knew, however, and this week he delivered BIG TIME.

Today we add 2 super fun, space themed elf scenes to our collection of elf ideas!

Space Walk Elf

Materials needed:

Elf and space shuttle are suspended from ceiling with fishing twine. Tie the elf and the shuttle together with another piece of twine if they need a little help being stabilized. Connect elf and shuttle with string/tubing. Affix the tubing to the objects with tape if necessary.

Place helmet on elf.  Additionally, you can cover his body with aluminum foil to mimic a space suit. (See example of this in our Elf on the Moon pictures.)
