1. Start a family tradition to have some holiday fun
2. To encourage imagination.
3. To teach to set goals and make sure they are accomplished. Since Mr. Elf will be watching for Santa there will hopefully be more of a reason to have good behavior :)
Do you have elf on the shelf? Share your fun ideas below!
I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!
HAPPY December 1st!
Even though it doesn't snow where I live I love the feeling of more family time, celebration, and just happiness all around. Plus the amazing smell of Christmas trees! This year I decided to try something new with my toddler. I jumped on the "ELF ON THE SHELF" trend since my toddler is at the perfect age! I am so excited to share with you our experience & family fun. I'm getting him prepped tonight by reading the book that comes with it. It has great illustrations and explains to your little one about the elf. If you haven't gotten your elf on the shelf then make sure to get it before it sells out and to make sure it comes to you on time before the holiday season ends.
I included a small letter from Santa! I think he'll like it.
Do you like my Santa drawing skills? ;)
He already tried the dog treats! What will we do with him?
