Are you on the hunt for more Elf on the Shelf ideas? I love this one!
Use a candle (you do NOT have to light it) and make smores for your kiddos!
Since we have a boy elf and a girl elf I incorporated both of them and made it double the fun.
Here is how I did it.
I put the boy elf on a large marson jar that had the lid on it. This way he was up high and his marshmallows could reach the candle.
I used a wire hanger and took the curved hanging part and wrapped it around his middle. This helps to hold him in place without weighing him down.
The hanger reaches over to the candle where his sweet little elf wife is admiring his work.
I used a candle I just received the other day that is from the folks at our local Big D NYE celebration. (The biggest New Years Eve celebration here in Dallas!)
I put two mini marshmallows on the end of the hanger and I toasted them a bit before setting everything up.
One of the marshmallows is resting on the rim of the candle to help bring more support.
I lit the candle just for the photo. If you are going to light it I would not light it until the kids were waking up and hunting for Elf. OR, you could use a non-flame candle if you have safety concerns.
See those candies? They are the perfect milk chocolate candy for your smore! (I found mine at Target.)
They are even wrapped in foil wrappers that are mini Elf on the Shelf boys and girls.
What a special treat that your elf can bring and it’s perfect for this set up!
And this is how you make Elf on the Shelf smores by candle light.
Oh, the things you do for love!
