Year after year, children and adults alike are baffled by the mystery of how Santa really knows who’s been naughty or nice.
After much urging by the elves and Mrs. Claus, Santa has allowed his biggest secret to be revealed in The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition.
At the start of each Christmas season, the elf appears to serve as Santa's eyes and ears, traveling back to the North Pole each and every night to make a detailed report of the day’s activities.
This keepsake gift set includes a light skin, blue eyed boy North Pole pixie scout elf and a hardbound watercolor picture book. Children can register their elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa.
Elf on the Shelf Freebies:
You don't have to buy an Elf on the Shelf - you could make your own out of paper or cardboard!
The large paper craft makes a very nice wall hanging decoration for Christmas time. It also makes a nice centerpiece for a classroom bulletin board with children's Christmas poems or artwork hung around it.
You can attach the arms and legs with brass tacks ("brads") instead of glue if you want them to be movable.

So how DID this magical Elf travel to your home? Was it by Reindeer, floating on a snowflake, posted through the mail? However he arrived, he will need a passport to get back home again!

Elf on the Shelf printables - designed for kids 2-10
These printables are a bit different from my norm. Instead of activities, there are little cards to be printed out and placed near your Elf on the Shelf while he is caught creating some mischief. Also included is a list of 32 relatively simple ideas, and a matching card with a rhyme to go along with the idea.
Also, there are strips to be used at a Christmas countdown chain featuring the elves!
