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!
Elf on the Shelf kicks off on Tuesday 1 December and this Christmas marks the UK release of the official book and elf set. Since originating in America, the tradition seems to have caught on in family.
