Elf on the Shelf Ideas with Scripture

 

Twinkle and Snowflake had a candy cane hunt ready when the children got up on day 8. We’ve been doing this for quite a few years now, so I have plastic candy canes that they hunt and one candy cane treat.

The note below is the one I had sitting with the elves when the children came looking. It’s the story of the candy cane and then telling them to go look for the hidden candy canes at the end. ❤

Here is the free printable for the Legend of the Candy Cane

Also later this week, the elves had pizza for lunch with the children. Our elves move a few times a day because there are just so many things planned and so many cute, little props that they can’t help themselves. 😉

Hope you like these ideas and start including some scripture in your own elf shenanigans! 🙂 I would love to see that next year there are more ideas for biblical EotS.

Day 9:

I have not been quite ready for this one! It seems like more work to get out supplies and clean up from than even the North Pole Breakfast! lol…but now that it is over, it didn’t seem so bad at all and I am glad we did it!

Twinkle and Snowflake help set up (oh, who are we kidding…I set up everything! lol) dough for cinnamon ornaments, cookie cutters, and supplies for gingerbread playdough. We’re having a party this coming week and I thought it would be nice to have something for the littles to play with (the play dough, that is).

The recipes are simple! I found them with Google. I tried the top results and they turned out nice! Just a tip on the ornaments, bake them with the rack somewhat on the top half of the oven, flip over halfway through the time, and don’t make them too thick or too thin! about the size of the chocolate part of an oreo. 😉
