Great way to explain Santa.Kinda made me tear up a little.I still remember learning the truth and how hard it was, but I never gave up believing in the spirit of Santa. I hope I will remember this for my children someday.
I have also seen similar centerpieces that use epsom salts instead of sugar. You could also sprinkle a mix of pearls/gems. Sand (or sugar), faux pearls, a 3 candle. An easy DIY wedding centerpiece idea.
I would use a big bowl. Idea for the first morning our Elf! Mel the Elf, swimming in a sink of mini marshmallows, and a bowl of powdered donuts for breakfast with a little treat for the kids, and of course the Elf on a Shelf book to read!
