A few years ago, our family gave in to the holiday hype and shortly afterward a new friend started visiting our house…our very own Elf on a Shelf! Now, I know people have very strong feelings about the Elf on a Shelf thing, but I will admit, I enjoy the whole idea. Part of the fun of the holidays for me is getting to create magic for my kids, and Elf on a Shelf is another way I do that. And it doesn’t hurt that once the Elf arrives (or in our case, two elves) my kids’ behavior straightens up a bit! Added bonus? My hard-to-wake-up kid springs out of bed each morning instead of fighting me or her alarm clock because she wants to find the elves! Our school mornings in December are the easiest we have all year!
The only problem I have with the Elf on a Shelf tradition is when I lack inspiration…I’ve put the elves in every conceivable pose (okay, maybe I just move them from the couch to the bookshelf to the kitchen counter), and I just don’t have the time or energy to come up with uber creative elf scenarios. That’s where Fete Box comes in!
