I ran across this post called Christmas in July: Elf on the Shelf on A Life in Balance blog, and it had me laughing and wishing i had an elf on the shelf! This is such a great little idea to keep the “Elf” fun going year round. I really love how the Elf goes on vacation but he doesn’t forget about your kids and you can even get him a superhero cape! Did you know you can even get your Elf a Hanukkah outift?
Does your nanny family participate in the Elf on the Shelf? Do you help get the Elf in trouble with the kids?
To keep the Elf magic going all year long, why not have your Elf send a postcard to the kids while he or she is on vacation. Last summer, Elf Outfitters sent one to my kids. It was a hoot to watch their faces.
