The Elf on the Shelf tradition is one that we started a few years ago. Over the years I have learned a few things about our elf and I love sharing those things with you. An Elf Returns from the North Pole letter is a fun way to kick off this yearly tradition. You can save this image to your computer (right click) and use it for your elf entrance if you would like!
While naughty elves are fun….they are also a lot of work. My best advice for all the families who need to move an elf each night is this: Set the alarm clock on your phone each night. Use that nightly reminder to move the elf. By setting a reminder for the next 25 nights we are much less likely to forget to move our darling elves.
If the elf is not for you, take the easy way out and get Santa’s Lazy Gnome.
