Who thought we would be saving the world by sitting at home in 2020? You might think about creating a Corona Virus Elf on the Shelf inspired fun for a few days just to help keep things creative while you are stuck at home. Our family loves the Christmas Tradition of our Elf on the Shelf. We noticed some families putting up their Christmas decorations during this Covid-19 breakout to sparkle some fun for their family while self distancing or being under quarantine. Here is how you can make a Corona Virus Inspired Elf on the Shelf. This post may contain affiliate links. At no cost to you we might earn a small commission if you choose to make a purchase.
Corona Virus – Elf on the Shelf
All you need is any doctor inspired Barbie outfit. We found our Ken Outfit from eBay. You can also search Amazon for Barbie Doctor, Barbie Nurse, Scientist, or even Barbie Dentist. We are picturing the Ken Doll outfit for our Elf! All of the outfits we found were perfect, but we found eBay shipped the fastest right now during Corona time. I am now seeing the shipping times have shortened on Amazon too, so check both.
Of course your elf needs a face mask. To make one, you will need two small rubber bands and either paper towel or fabric. Fold the fabric into a thin strip and use two small rubber bands on each side.
Leave a sweet note from your elf. We created this cute rhyming poem:
Wash your hands and keep them clean.
This helps stop the spread of Covid-19.
Enjoy being home from your school.
Learning with your family is totally cool.
Christmas will be here sooner than later.
Until then, see you later alligator!
Now, when your elf makes his/her appearance, I heard they LOVE Toilet Paper! It might be cute to leave a note of your elf apologizing if they have ever tee-pee’d your house. Have fun with it and decide how many days your elf wants to hang out during this crazy time of our lives.
If you make a Corona Virus elf we would love for you to share and “tag” us with your creations!
