This is what I've come up with so far:
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
Since we had items readily available, I somewhat recreated the part with the goat and the boat. We have 2 Rise of the Guardian Elves that are enemies of Eggnog so they each had a part and a sign with their line from the story.
I quickly sewed 2 eggs from felt, just green circles sewn directly to cream colored blobs, and green ham which is stuffed with fluff. The "plate" has a bit of elastic sewn to the bottom so it could easily slip on his hand and stay put.
Bad Elf with the goat, fox and mouse in his car, looking crabby.
This is one of Mr. No's favorite books but he's been cranky about reading it because we've been trying to pick out sight words while I read. He was all for it that night since it had Eggnog's approval.
The Magic Tree House Series by Mary Pope Osborne
This one was a bit more involved. I actually made the tree house out of cardboard which was fairly simple. Cut the doors and windows and draw the lines on to make it look like wood and it was done. The cardboard ladder took a bit longer and I should have tied it differently but it worked. I used the leftover cardboard and cut it into strip, then punched holes in the ends, tied on the yarn and then taped it into the tree house. And Eggnog couldn't be Jack without his glasses!
I was even crazy enough to make cardboard books, paint them and add titles. It's not the magic tree house without books! Lalaloopsy girl was Annie and then I grabbed whatever toys I could find that fit the books we had read so far. Dinosaurs, pirates, ninjas, knights, etc. and hung the pteradactyl from the fan so he was flying. This made him want to continue on in the series so Eggnog would have more adventures to go on with LalaLoopsy Annie.
Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash by Sarah Weeks
This was my last one so far. Mr. No had everyone he could find read this book to him after Eggnog set up the scene. It's a cute little book about Mrs. McNosh washing and hanging up the laundry and everything in sight including herself. He thinks it's hilarious and I even managed to find some chatter teeth to pass as Grandpa McNosh's removable teeth. This was a simple one to set up. Ribbon tied around the room and I hung up every silly but small enough thing I could find.
I like to create things so I enjoy making the scenes more involved but they could easily be done as simply as Mrs. McNosh was and it's a positive but still fun alternative to fresh elves! Though we enjoy when our elf gets into mischief! With Mr. No just beginning to learn sight words, I thought this would be a fun way to encourage him to read more without pushing him. It's working and the book scenes are his favorite scenes so far!
