1) Gummy Bears in Sink

This is an adorable little scene where instead of water coming out of the faucet you can make it look like gummy bears are gushing out! All you need to do is glue the gummy bears to a Shish kebab stick and that's it!

10) Christmas Foosball

Stick some gummy bears on some toothpicks, put them through a mini cardboard box (you can check on youtube how to make them - they're very easy) then get your elf versus a minion or any other toy you can find. You can use lego to make all the heights equal.
