Elf on the Shelf: In the Nativity with Bible, & DIY Mini Cake for Jesus

Last year, our elf was also spotted in our nativity scene holding baby Jesus. With our twins being only 4 years old, our elf tried to be more relatable. He brought his own elf-sized Bible opened to The Christmas story in the book of Luke and a miniature birthday cake!
You can find the free Bible printable here. Be sure NOT to select "Fit to Page" when printing.
The birthday cake can be easily made with 2 Oreo type cookies and icing between and around them. Cut a regular birthday candle down to size. The cakes work best if made a couple of days before to soften the cookies so the candle inserts easily without breaking the cookie. These can also be made if your child celebrates a birthday during the time your elf visits. (Happy birthday to my nephew, Nick!)
*We didn't have any pre-made icing on hand (and I was in a hurry), so my icing is a little thin, because I just mixed milk and powdered sugar.  You can make your cake as fancy as you wish, but mine certainly looks like it was our crazy elf's attempt at a cake!
