That magical time of year is almost here. Our favourite little elves are on their way from the North Pole, heading to families all over the Shire to sprinkle some Christmas magic. So it’s time to start thinking about how your cheekly little Elf on the Shelf will let the kids know he’s back. Because everyone knows that before the big, jolly fellow makes his holiday debut, he sends his little helpers to our homes to keep an eye on the little ones.
Start the season out right by coming up with special Elf on the Shelf arrival ideas that your kids will never forget. Whether he arrives in grand fashion or in a more subtle sweet way, your kids will be beyond excited to welcome their Elf on the Shelf home.
The Elf on the Shelf tradition turns up the Christmas spirit to fever pitch, creating a daily countdown to Santa’s arrival, from December 1 to Christmas Eve. It’s also an awesome way to help the kids behave in that crazy lead-up to Christmas Day (remember, the elf will report the kids’ behaviour to Santa every night).
Here are ten simple but adorable ways your elf can arrive on 1st December.
