Every year around this time, the kids start asking me when the Elf on a Shelf will make his return…and as always it’s the day after Thanksgiving! If you have no idea what I’m talking about then, you need to check out The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition. It comes with a storybook and an Elf.
Each night when the kids go to sleep that mischievous Elf ‘magically’ finds a new location to hide. I had so much fun with this last year, creating little scenes with the elf, like hanging him from the dining room table lamp or climbing up into the snacks cupboard. When the kids wake up in the morning, it’s the first thing they look for! Literally weeks of fun!
