Elf On The Shelf- Idea’s & Planning

It’s not long before Father Christmas sends his helpers down from the North Pole to keep an eye on all the children (& Adults) to make sure they are doing their best to stay on the Nice list! I know The elves are not for everyone but they are a firm favourite in our house. They always have to be factored into our Christmas planning

A few Years ago Twinkl & Puddin arrived at our home. on December the first They brought with them a special present  – A book all about them.

The Idea behind the Elves is that they are sent from Father Christmas to live with families and then report back to Santa anything that he needs for the Naughty or nice list!

Unfortunately the Elves are only children themselves so need a little guidance on how to behave themselves!

Here are a few examples of the things ours have got up to during their time with us!

Some days when They are tired they just sit at the Christmas tree or on the mantlepiece.

This year I am anticipating the elves return on the 1st of December and I think they will be up to their antics again!

Ok So now to the planning –

After going through pinterest for Ideas – I print off a calendar and start jotting down some ideas!

Once the month is full of ideas I can prepare an accessories bag for each day.

each Morning they leave a clue in our wooden advent calendar as to where they are or what activity we are doing that day.

The big twins really love heading down to look for the elves each morning. I just hope the little two leave them alone and don’t take their magic bay touching them.

I hope I have given you some inspiration.

Let me know what your Elf gets up to!

Happy December

Nina
