Elf on the Shelf ideas I had heard about this little fella @ the holidays and bought one for my son and daughter-in-law. My grandchildren 2, 4 and 10 had so much fun with him. Every morning, the first thing they would do is race to find him and see what mischief he had gotten into while they slept.
This is such a cute idea! My boys got Elf on the Shelf last year right after Thanksgiving. The boys get so excited to wake up each morning to see where the Elf was sitting that day. It was also a great way for the boys to remember to be good and kind to each other because the Elf was watching and reporting back to Santa.
