Try this:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defun tj/wrap-sexp-in-elisp-src-block ()
    "Wrap sexp at point in elisp src block"
    (let* ((marker (point-marker))
           (beg (point))
           (end (save-excursion
                  (forward-sexp) (point)))
           (cut-strg (buffer-substring beg end)))
      (delete-region beg end)
      (goto-char (marker-position marker))
        "\n#+begin_src emacs-lisp\n%s\n#+end_src\n"
      (set-marker marker nil)))

: tj/wrap-sexp-in-elisp-src-block


(defun foo ()
  "do foo"
   (message "foo"))

1. with point at the opening paren:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun foo ()
  "do foo"
   (message "foo"))

2. with point at the 'd' of defun:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
 foo ()
  "do foo"
   (message "foo"))

3. with point between 'do foo':

(defun foo ()
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
   (message "foo"))

This is actually quite useful, will add it to my init file (since I
frequently get 'org-babel-demarcate-block: Args out of range' errors
when trying to wrap a region).

Note that the behaviour depends a bit on the major-mode. In emacs-lisp
mode, a string is seen as one sexp, thus with point at the first
double-quote of 

"hello world"

I get

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
"hello world"

while in this message-mode buffer I get

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
