Elfie is always keeping an eye on Gav and reporting back to Santa every night on if he's been naughty or nice. So far Gav's been extra nice, plus knowing Elfie has his eye on him really helps. Read more about our family's Elf on the Shelf, Elfie here.
Last night our elf grabbed some friends and they created a little photo booth of awesome. They set it up a couple ways so when Gav woke up, he could join in the fun too!
THANK YOU to Living Locurto for this amazing Elf photo booth idea and printable.
Below are the other places Elfie's landed each morning this week. Feel free to borrow these ideas for your elf! If you have a pinterest board, I have pin it buttons to make it easy for you to remember them for another time.
Elfie watches to make sure Gav is on his best behavior. That doesn't stop him from having a little fun as well. He found the water balloons and is ready for a fight.
Gav went to a deli with his dad and his dad's roommate earlier this week. He came home raving about 'the brown and white gingerbread men with chocolate in them.' I had to contact his dad to find out where these came from, but they really exist! Elfie stopped by the deli and brought them to gav. As well as a tall glass of almond milk.
Floam! Elfs (is it Elves?) love having fun, and what's more fun than colorful sticky styrofoam? Elfie created a couple shapes for Gav on the table.
This was the first day Elfie arrived. He left a long note and asked for Gav's help playing tic-tac-toe against Elfina. Crossing our fingers Elfina makes an appearance this year too!
A lot of people's elves don't arrive until December 1st. So if you have been thinking about getting an Elf on the Shelf for your family this year, it's not too late! They are available at Target, I've seen them at our local toy store, and other places too. All for around $29.99. For other resources, links, ideas, etc. check out my post from this past monday HERE.
Just remember, Elf on the Shelf is fun for the kids first, adults second. If you are struggling for ideas for where your elf will land, simply think of the things that make your kids happy. Yes, of course Pinterest and other places are great for ideas. But at the end of the day, think of your family and the perfect ideas will come to you. I promise.
