The Elf On The Shelf

The Elf On The Shelf is a little scout elf that is sent to you from santa, The reason why, How and When is down to you. The elf is nameless and it is down to you to name him/her, once you have named your elf they receive their magic.  This allows the elf to fly to and from the North Pole to report to Santa the activities, good and bad, that have taken place throughout the day.

The book and dvd are a great way for the children to understand what the elf is all about. As they both state "There's only one rule that you have to follow, so I will come back and be here tomorrow: Please do not touch me. My magic might go, and Santa won't hear all I've seen or I know." 

Although the children are told not to touch their scout elf, they can talk to it and tell it all their Christmas wishes. The story ends on Christmas eve with the elf leaving to stay with Santa and returns again next year. 

I have made a few decision on how the Elf is going to arrive and what our elf will be like (mischievous) I have come up with places around the house where the elf will take place and also some funny and mischievous pranks that we will wake up to. 

I bought the Elf on the shelf, the book and dvd from Amazon. All three were sold separately so if you don't want the book or dvd you don't have to. However they are a good way of explaining what the elf is all about. I do recommend the dvd for younger children as i find seeing it will give them a better understanding than the book. The reason I bought all three was so that the following year I can just read the book when he returns. 

In December I will be doing Vlogmas! So head over to my youtube channel to see what we get up to, and of course see what our elf gets up to :) Don't forget to hit that subscribe button.
