What Is Elf on the Shelf?
Bring the Christmas magic home to your family this year! The original Elf on the Shelf set includes a magical scout elf from the North Pole and a beautiful children’s story book, all in a keepsake gift box. When you adopt this special elf and name him, he receives his Christmas magic and can fly to the North Pole—but only when all girls and boys are sound asleep.
At the start of each holiday season, the elf returns to his family’s house to be Santa’s eyes and ears, and every night he travels back to the North Pole to report in. Families can register their elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa.
We’ve rounded up some of the most fun Elf on the Shelf ideas that you can try at home! As an added bonus, many of these links to these blogs have many OTHER ideas! So, this is a list of 25, which gives you links to so many more!
