Show and Tell 12.9.09

My Show and Tell is about our Elf on the Shelf. If you haven't heard of this little game, click here.
I have not been paid to endorse this product; I am simply spreading Christmas cheer. The Elf is an ingenious idea.

There is a story of a little elf that comes down from the North Pole to stay in your home in order to help Santa watch over the children. Every day he inexplicably moves to a different location in the house to let everyone know he is magical and is always watching.

Another great part of the game is that the child is allowed to name their Elf friend. Ours was named after a dear friend; they were honored.

We have explained to Elf that it is probably best that he keeps his jet setting to one room as Min man is only 2, and we would be waiting forever for him to spot the Elf.

It is quite a joy to come downstairs early in the morning and watch our little boy's face light up as we ask, "Where is he?"

"Right there!!!"

Honestly, Min man doesn't really get just how important Elf's job is. Next year Mommy and Daddy are looking forward to Elf helping us out when someone decides to throw a fit or jump on the couch ;)

No, the candle is not lit!

Check out the rest of Show and Tell.

I think my kids would really get into this. I've tried the plain old Santa threats and they do work sometimes. Actually having an elf staring at them, but just push them enough to behave really well which would be wonderful! Whoever created this is a genius!

How fun! I've never even heard of that, but I need to go get me an elf!

I've heard of the Elf on a Shelf before. A friend had one for her daughter a year or two ago and loved it. Glad you're enjoying it in your family as well!

What a great idea! I don't think I'll get it done in time for this year but I definitely think I'll be adding it for next year.

Cool idea! Where did you get your elf from?

Stephanie Faris said...

What a fun game! I've seen those, but I didn't know what they were.

Such a clever idea. I wish I had heard of it when my kiddo was young enough. I have enjoyed the elfin antics over at Brandi's though. Check hers put here

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest
