Elf on the Shelf is such a controversial Christmas tradition. So many parents bemoan it and complain about the silly elf and having to move them and come up with ideas each night.
Honestly? I love it. I love creating magic for my kids and this is such a simple way to do that.
Some nights, am I over it? Sure, and I set the elf in the fruit bowl and call it a night.
But other nights, it’s pure magic.
One of the first things that you should do when you get an elf is to name them. It’s so fun to come up with funny names for elves and I encourage you to really stretch out the naming and make it a fun part of the game.
