Elf on the shelf gives the kids bible verses from time to time to remember the real meaning of Christmas. There are lists online for daily Christmas bible verses for kids. I combine a few and do mine every few days.
Brilliant!!!! Have your Elf leave the kids a note asking them to plant his magic seeds (Tic Tacs) into a bowl of sugar for a sweet surprise. When they wake up the next morning the seeds will have grown into cookies!
Cute and playful, these gingerbread-spiced brownie cutouts are an easy holiday project for the kids to help with! You can use traditional gingerbread people cookie cutters to shape the brownies and then get creative with decorations. Use extra brownie pieces from the cutouts for snacks or ice cream sundaes!
