If you are looking for a Basketball Elf on the Shelf idea, I have an easy and delicious idea for you! Pudding Cup Crafts is brought to you by #ReadySetSnack & #CollectiveBias but all opinions and experiments and shopping experience was all ME! I never say, “no”, to chocolate and since I am being compensated it was a pretty easy relationship!
I am all about purchasing ready to eat snacks for lunches and snack time! I work full-time and making lunches and gourmet snacks are not always my forte. We often purchase Hersey’s Pudding Cups and those cute little plastic containers can make fur the cutest pudding cup crafts!
My two girls are FILLED with energy and I am lacking energy. So being able to have fun snacks for my kids AND THEN show them that washing them up to use as a craft is even more exciting! Do you know what is even more fun…taking their crafts and then having fun with them around Christmas time, when our Elf on the Shelf ideas become scarce and our Elfie LOVES to get in trouble with their crafts!
A for pack of Hersey’s Pudding Cups are ONLY $2.48. A lot of times you can find a sweet coupon to make this deal even better!
After our family enjoyed our Hershey dessert, we were talking about making crafts. My 6 year-old said lets make a basketball goal! So we did and it was fun! So our little naughty elf decided it was time to practice his hoops! Here is how to make your own basketball Elf on the Shelf using pudding cups!
Basketball Elf on the Shelf Idea
Paperclips OR tape
1. Buy pudding!
2. Eat the pudding!
3. Scratch off the Expiration Date
4. Cut the bottom of the pudding cup.
5. Make a backboard by folding a white piece of paper in half twice and drawing some squares.
6. In order to keep the rim we had to cut a little snippit out of the top. Later I figured out tape would have worked much better! ☺ You can tape it on the wall or find some cardboard scraps like I did for the backboard and base!
Let your kids play some hoops with any bouncy ball they have…that night let Elfie Play some HOOPS!
