It’s that time of the year, the most wonderful time – Christmas! There are so many different holiday traditions, with one being fun for both children and adults, is the Elf on the Shelf.
The Elf on the Shelf is a fun-filled Christmas tradition that has captured the hearts of children everywhere who welcome home one of Santa’s Scout Elves each holiday season. The magical Scout Elves help Santa manage his nice list by taking note of a family’s Christmas adventures and reporting back to Santa at the North Pole nightly. Each morning, the Scout Elf returns to its family and perches in a new spot, waiting for someone to spot them.
The Elf on the Shelf is fun for everyone, the children get so happy to see where Elf has landed each morning and adults have fun coming up with spots/pranks. Last year our Elf arrived with donuts and a letter that said “Donut Worry I’m back”, and did so many other simple but fun things. But most importantly HAVE FUN WITH IT!
If you get stressed about where you are going to do with your Elf each night, here are over 20 different ideas from some great bloggers.
