Today our countdown fun is – Who is tiny and dressed in red? Who will watch us and see if we are naughty or nice? Time to read our story so our little friend can arrive tonight.
Day 13 – The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition™ is an activity the entire family will enjoy. Based on the tradition Carol Aebersold began with her family in the 1970s, this cleverly rhymed children’s book explains that Santa knows who is naughty and/or nice because he sends a scout elf to every home. During the holiday season, the elf watches children by day and reports to Santa each night. When children awake, the elf has returned from the North Pole and can be found hiding in a different location. This activity allows The Elf on the Shelf to become a delightful hide-and-seek game.
You can purchase this Tradition-in-a-Box™ and it comes with its very own scout elf, a hardbound children’s book and a keepsake box for easy storage at Various stores and online.
