"Elf on the Shel" A great family game . The Elf on the Shelf comes into your home to keep watch on the kids for Santa. He only comes to life at night while the kids are sleeping. They aren’t allowed to touch them or the magic wears off. Every day the elf moves (with the help of mom/Dad,Grandma,etc) and the kids need to go see what mischief he’s gotten himself into! Click on the pic for some ideas of places he could be! A great year after year tradition for you & your family!
