Elf on the Shelf Candy Cane Garden
We have the cutest, yummiest, two-day Elf on the Shelf idea. This instant download comes with a Candy Cane Christmas Garden poem, providing interactive fun with your North Pole visitor and child!
Elf on the Shelf Magic Seeds
The first day you provide your child with a Christmas poem. You will also need a bowl of sugar and some magic seeds (we used Tic-Tacs.) Have your child read the poem and then plant their magic seeds into the bowl of sugar. Wait one day, while their garden grows. The anticipation is exciting!
Elf on the Shelf Garden
That night, remove the magic seeds and insert Candy Canes. We planted seven Tic-Tacs and grew six candy canes. As a tip to mom, count your Tic-Tacs, they (meaning your kids) will too! When your kids wake, their garden will have grown from magic seeds to a magical Christmas Candy Cane garden!
Tip: Use your candy cane to tell a story later! Print this The Legend of Candy Cane Poem Printable.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and a elf doll. The book is poetic and in rhyme sharing the purpose of the Elf’s visits. The Elf visits each Thanksgiving. He/She goes and returns from the North Pole each evening. Every morning he can be found in a new location in the house. The Elf has been found in the refrigerator, fishing in the toilet, writing messages on the mirror or hanging from the lights. It is VERY IMPORTANT, the Elf is not touch each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. The elves return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
