It is no surprise that both of my kiddos adore the newest Disney Planes movie, and Dusty is by far their very favorite. We watched this movie together as a family for a family movie night in and I have to say, I loved it too. If you have been following me on Instagram you also know that we have two very special and creative Elves following us through the Holiday season. Peppermint and Cupcake love to bring Jude and Teagan treats, crafts and small gifts to help the 30 days of Elf on the Shelf stay on beat.
I started to think about how I could incorporate Disney Planes Fire & Rescue into our Elf on the Shelf fun and I went straight to thinking about the campground that is in the movie. What do you love to do when you are camping? Well one of our favorite things to do is make S'mores!! So my vision grew. Dusty MUST bring a S'more Indoors Kit to the kids - with the help of the Elves of course!
Thankfully, I was able to fulfill my vision by heading to Walmart and finding out that there are some great Disney Planes merchandise on Rollback right now!
Check these out:
- Disney Planes Flight to the Finish Speedway Rollback to $24.97
- Disney Planes Fire & Rescue Die-Cast Vehicles, 3-Pack Rollback to $14.97
- Disney Planes Fire & Rescue Deluxe Talking Vehicle Assortment Rollback to $19.97
- Planes Character Assortment die-cast set Rollback to $4.97
- Disney Planes: Fire and Rescue Character Assortment die-cast Rollback to $4.97
Once I saw those prices I knew that I would have to break the bank to have our Elves fly to the scene with a treat! Look, I love doing Elf on the Shelf but it can get expensive so I have to find ways to get creative on a budget.
Now that I had my Dusty that the Elves would fly in on, I needed to create my S'mores Indoors Kit. Nom! Most of us probably have these supplies in our pantry, which makes this kit an easy go to for Elf on the Shelf or even a hostess or teacher gift - because really? Who doesn't love S'mores???

Sunday morning the kids woke up to see Peppermint and Cupcake riding on Dusty and they had the S'mores Indoors Kit right next to them. The first thing Jude want to do was eat a marshmallow but once he did that, he played with the new Dusty Plane for hours. He thought it was so cool that Peppermint and Cupcake flew to his house on Dusty! I love the magic - kids make Christmas perfect.
After we had naps we decided it was time to enjoy our S'mores Indoors and what better way to enjoy those but to also watch Disney Planes Fire & Rescue? It was kind of funny when Jude finally tied it all together as we were watching the movie. "Oh, they are are on a camping place! That is where you make S'mores!" Ha! Little minds work hard. ;)
We enjoyed our favorite part of camping and mountain trips in our family room. Memories made! Thanks Peppermint, Cupcake and Dusty for bring us our S'mores Indoors Kit!
Run out to Walmart today - you still have time before those gifts need to be under the tree or stuffed in the stockings! Some of these Rollback items really are perfect for Stocking Stuffers too!
