Fun With Elf On The Shelf - Merry Christmas Muffins

Our kids love the days when our elf brings them a little something.  Today, the elf brought blueberry muffins for an after school snack!

Fun With Elf On The Shelf - Playdoh Tree

The other day, I found a good deal on Play-Doh on Amazon.  All our PlayDoh was dried up and so mixed together that every can was basically gray or brown. 

I was going to give it to the kids for Christmas but decided the elf could have more fun with it. 

I arranged it in the shape of a Christmas tree with the top pointing towards our elf.

The kids were thrilled with the new Play-Doh and thanked our elf with a little self portrait!

Fun With Elf On The Shelf - Playing In The Copier

The other night our elf decided to climb up on the desk and take a nap inside the copier. 

Imagine our kid's suprise when they were looking for the elf one day and found this in the printer tray!

Fun With Elf On The Shelf - Advent Calendar

If you're looking for something fun to do with your Elf On The Shelf today, it's a great time to start an Advent calendar!  As of this writing, it's December 1st which is the perfect day to start the countdown to Christmas!!!!

Advent calendars are available at many stores but I found ours at Fresh Market this year.  They had a lot of backgrounds available but this one shows the real reason for the season. 

Each of our kids received one from the elf this morning.  Chocolate for breakfast!  Sounds like Christmas time to me!!

It's Time For Elf On The Shelf 2015 Season To Begin!!

It's time!  It's time!!! 

Our Elf On The Shelf arrived today and the kids are very happy to see her! 

Over the next few weeks, I'll blog about any new things that we do with the elf this year.  I won't be doing a daily post due to time constraints.  I'm writing elsewhere now and working on a book proposal so elf antics may not be quite as original.  That's OK though because my kids have actually mentioned that they hope our elf will do certain things "again" this year.  They hope the elf will build another toilet paper snowman, go zip-lining again, or bring them more hot chocolate like she did again today. 

Check out the archives here of nearly 50 elf on the shelf posts and I'll do my best to add at least ten original ones during the 2015 Elf On The Shelf season!

Thanks for stopping by!  Merry Christmas!!!

Less Than Three Months Until Christmas!

Can you believe there are less than three months until Christmas??!?!  That means, we're just two months away from Elf On The Shelf season!

If you don't have an Elf On The Shelf yet, it's time to order one!

 If you already have your Elf On the Shelf, check out this super cute Naughty or Nice Elf On The Shelf board game!

 I'm already thinking of new things for our elf this year!  Tic Tac Toe marshmallow game, Despicable Me Minion made out of a banana with the elf holding the marker, and wreaking havoc in our wrapping paper stash are things I'm planning so far! I expect this will be the last year that my oldest believes in Santa and The Elf On The Shelf so I want to make it a memorable one! That said, I expect our Elf will be part of Christmas for many many years to come!
