Our little Elf on the Shelf Sneaky arrived yesterday with an odd little package labeled “Magic Snowflake Dust”.


He must have over heard the conversation I had with the girl about not getting any snow where we live. She loves snow, but in our area we are lucky if we get an inch, and even luckier if it sticks around for more than a few minutes.

I must say I was fascinated with it. According to the instructions that he left all we needed to do was make a few snowflakes out of pipe cleaners, then stir the magic snowflake dust into warm water and place our pipe cleaners into it. He recommended doing this before the kiddos went to bed.

So that is what we did, I used a pen across the top of the container we used to help hang the snowflakes into the snowflake solution.

When the kids woke up the next morning, they were welcomed by Sneaky and a pleasant surprise.


The pipe cleaner was completely crystalized! It looked like it was frozen in time with sparkly ice crystals! The kids (ok, me too) were amazed at the transformation!
