With December upon us, many families see the return of the ever-popular Elf On The Shelf.
If you’re not familiar with this little guy, then here’s a little round-up. It all started in 2004. You ask for an elf to be dispatched from the North Pole at the start of Advent to keep a watchful eye on the children and make sure they stay on Santa’s “nice” list. On Christmas Eve the elf returns to the North Pole to update Santa on the children’s behaviour.
There are also rules to the elf’s stay at your home. It must maintain a distance and provide a watchful eye for Santa. Children are not allowed to touch the elf or it will lose the magic. The elf must never move or speak when people are home or awake, but can move from place to place when no one is around. That’s where parents come in! Placing the elf in mischievous situations to be found in the morning adds to the excitement of Christmas.
Have you got a car crazy little one? Then they’ll love these car Elf on the Shelf ideas!
Elf and his new friends almost made it to the finish line before they were caught out.
And racing around the Christmas tree is not allowed either, elf.
That’s not where elf belongs. Where does he think he’s going?!
Oops…elf has been seen out taking his new girlfriend for a drive!
Elf loves playing with cars too.
