Elf on the Shelf

Now that Thanksgiving is over and we are left with tons of snow, you can start pulling out seasonal decorations and starting up on family traditions.

Does your family have an elf that visits around the holiday season to help children stay on their best behavior? We have heard that Santa sends these scout elves to keep his eyes and ears on the children.

Your adopted scout elf will watch over the house and at the end of the day they’ll report back to Santa and tell him all that he/she has seen. When morning comes families have a fun time looking around the house to see where the elf has moved to.

Sometimes the scout elves cause a little mischief around the house. Here are a few of the things  that the elves have been caught doing!









Although it is such a fun tradition to have as part of your family, the choice to adopt an elf is not for everyone. It’s nice to enhance gratitude, forgiveness, and generosity in not only the holiday season, but also year round. When it’s time for the elf to go, have a fun talk with your family about what it means to be kind all the time.


Please share with us what some of your families seasonal traditions are. If you have an elf and you capture them doing anything fun in your house, take a picture and post it on our Facebook page!
