Imagine your little one's face when they find a magical elf in the house from Santa! Sent to keep an eye on your child's behaviour, the Elf on the Shelf is a tradition where a cheeky pose-able figure visits during December until Christmas Eve when he catches a lift back with Santa. His mission is to ensure that the children are behaving to determine which list they deserve to be on this year, naughty or nice!
|I've named him Peppy Tum-Tums|
Your mischievous elf can be given a name and registered online and you can create some great scenarios for it to get the kids giggling and to encourage them to show the elf how it should behave properly. Each night he reports back to Santa to let him know how good your children are being.
I intend to have ours wrapping the Christmas tree in toilet roll and writing messages on the mirrors in toothpaste - simple yet fun!
He will be making an entrance on Saturday, 1st December, when the decorations go up and he will be arriving with a message from Santa and some treats to enjoy over the festive season. I have some great ideas planned for him and lots more goodies for him to magically present to the Mini Mes during the build up to the big day, including home grown lollipops! I'm hoping he helps to keep the Mini Mes calm and sensible up until Christmas morning but excited too by seeing what he gets up to next.
We received this lovely blue eyed Elf from PureBaby. You can pick up your set which includes a hardback book, a keepsake box and an elf or some lovely alternatives too here: http://www.purebaby.co.uk/?searchStr=elf&sub=Go%21
