We love having fun with our elf on the shelf and have lots of ideas here on Midgetmomma.com. This easy elf on the shelf idea is one that kids will love, hiding elf on the shelf in a balloon!
How to Put Elf on the Shelf in a Ballon
When you are putting your elf in a balloon you can hide the balloon somewhere in the house or you can decorate the tree with other balloons and the balloon with the elf on the tree. This easy elf on the shelf idea is one of my kids favorites.
Supplies needed to Put Elf in a Balloon
How to Put Elf in a Balloon
Fold the elf in half.
While the elf is folded in half stretch the opening of the balloon.
Starting with the tush portion of the elf, slide the balloon over the elf until all of the elf is inside the balloon.
Once the elf is inside the balloon blow up the balloon like normal and tie off the end so it stays inflated.
