How to Have Fun With the Elf on the Shelf

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

We have been visited by the Elf on the Shelf for over 7 years now.

At Christmas, we have 4 Elf on the Shelf, and an Uncle Si come to visit! We also have a Halloween Elf on the Shelf that comes for a few days around Halloween!

We really are a little crazy, but we love it. Even after our son stopped believing that they went back to Santa every night, he still absolutely believes in the magic of Christmas. When he finally stopped believing completely (he was nearly 11 years old) I asked if he still wanted them to come, and without hesitation, he said yes.

Here you will find all the Elf on the Shelf-related posts on my site!  I have also added a few links to our favorite accessories. We are constantly updating our posts, so scroll down and see what we currently have.

How to Say Goodbye to the Elf

This is really hard for younger children to understand, the elves come every day before Christmas in December, and then on Christmas morning, they have gone. We always leave an Elf on the Shelf goodbye letter when they come on 24th December.
