red tic tacs & white sugar would be a convincing candy cane! Magic Elf Seeds-use tic-tac's and sugar. The kids plant the 'seeds' before they go to bed and then when they wake up, they are candy canes! So cute for christmas eve!
Diy Cardboard Slide ~When I was a kid, we did this! ***One improvement: make the cardboard about a foot narrower than the stair width, so that there is space for the kids to climb up on the stairs rather than the cardboard slide.
