Looking for a great family Christmas tradition? Something fun that will keep your little ones in line? Well The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is what you have been looking for! The Elf on the Shelf is a classic story that tells the tale of how Santa knows if a child is naughty or nice. The answer: an Elf! The elf would arrive in the home around the holidays and had the responsibility of watching the children and reporting their behavior to Santa each night. In the morning, the elf would return and could be found in a new place around the house.
How does Santa REALLY know who’s been naughty or who’s been nice? After much urging by the elves and Mrs. Claus, Santa has allowed his biggest secret to be revealed in the book, The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition®. Santa has partnered each book with a magical scout elf which children name. They can then visit the North Pole (www.elfontheshelf.com) to register their elf’s name in our Hall of Registry and print their official elf adoption certificate. All Santa approved, of course!
This is such a cute gift! It’s like a fun game to find the elf’s new location each morning, plus children will be on their best behavior, learning to control themselves since the elf is “watching”. Parents can give a quick reminder… “Oh, you better listen, you know [insert elf’s name here] is watching“! They definitely don’t want him going back to the North Pole and reporting any bad news to Santa!
The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition comes with one of Santa’s elves and the corresponding children’s book that tells the story. Purchase this wonderful Christmas tradition on Amazon or on their website, www.elfontheshelf.com, where you can also register your elf and get a response from Santa.
