Fun and Creative Elf on the Shelf Ideas

“Elf on the Shelf” is a delightful holiday tradition where a scout elf is sent by Santa to keep an eye on the children and report back on their behavior. Remember to consider the age and interests of the children when arranging Elf on the Shelf activities, and have fun making the holiday season more magical with these creative ideas!

  • Christmas Countdown: Have the elf hold a small chalkboard or sign displaying the number of days left until Christmas.
  • Elf on the Swing: Hang the elf from a ribbon or string, making it look like they’re swinging from a chandelier or curtain rod.
  • Elf’s Movie Night: Set up a small movie night scene with popcorn, tiny movie tickets, and a tiny screen for the elf to enjoy a holiday movie.
  • Elf’s Snow Angels: Place the elf on a countertop or table surrounded by sugar, creating “snow angels” with a tiny spoon or fork.
  • Elf’s Marshmallow Hot Tub: Fill a small bowl with mini marshmallows and place the elf inside, making it look like a cozy hot tub.

Making Mini Marshmallow Sticks (Sshmallows Sticks)


Making mini marshmallow sticks is a fun and simple activity that’s perfect for adding a sweet touch to hot cocoa, desserts, or for use as a treat during holidays or special occasions.

Making Easy Mini Marshmallow Sticks

Mini marshmallow sticks are not only delicious but also versatile. You can customize them with different types of chocolate, sprinkles, or other toppings to match various occasions. They make for a fun and tasty DIY project that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults.

Here’s how to make mini marshmallow sticks:

Materials You’ll Need

Mini Marshmallows: You can find mini marshmallows at most grocery stores.

Toothpick Sticks: These will serve as the sticks for your mini marshmallows. You can use either toothpick sticks or wooden skewers, which you can cut down to the desired size.

Melting Chocolate or Chocolate Chips: You can use white, milk, or dark chocolate, depending on your preference.

Sprinkles (optional): For decoration and added flavor, you can use colorful sprinkles or other toppings.

Steps to Make Mini Marshmallow Sticks

  1. Thread Mini Marshmallows: Thread the mini marshmallows onto the toothpick sticks or skewers. You can push them down the stick, leaving a small space at the bottom for holding.
  2. Melt the Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate according to the package instructions, usually in short intervals to prevent burning. Stir the chocolate until it’s smooth and completely melted.
  3. Dip and Coat Marshmallows: Dip the marshmallows into the melted chocolate. You can dip them partially or entirely, depending on your preference.
  4. Add Sprinkles (Optional): While the chocolate is still wet, you can add sprinkles, crushed candy canes, or other decorative toppings to the coated marshmallows.
