Elf on the Shelf Ideas | Magic Shrinking Machine
We are back, so is the Elf! If you have been with us a long time, you know we have brought you a new Elf on the Shelf Ideas EVERY DAY (in November and December) for the past four years
Magic Shrinking Machine Printable! These cookies were too big. Elf brought home a magic shrinking machine and turned chocolate chip cookies into mini chocolate chip cookies! We wrapped a shipping box in Christmas Wrapping paper. We used some of the excess edges to line the cookies going into the machine and coming out.
Elf on the Shelf Idea Supplies:
- Elf on the Shelf
- Christmas Wrapping paper
- Chocolate chip cookies
- Mini chocolate chip cookies
- Printer paper (unless you print elsewhere)
You can also use Hershey Kisses (turned into chocolate chips) and candy canes of two different sizes.
For this idea, we also made you a printable!

I like to order my prints at Staples. It saves on ink and is only a few short miles from my home. I pick-up at the store, but of course you can upload them online and then have them shipped to your home.
