Meet Zac, delivering our advent calendar's last year
Getting back to those parenting forums, all I can say is some parent's must have A LOT of time on their hands and A LOT of imagination. I would love to have the time (and inclination if I'm honest) to think up elaborate scenario's for our elf to participate in, I'm sure my children would love it. However, I can't see it happening anytime soon. This is more like me....
So when I spotted Elves Incorporated* on facebook I knew this was the perfect solution to my problems. They have done all of the hard work for me, I just need to sit back, relax and enjoy the elf on the shelf magic. As we already have an elf, we ordered the elf re-fill kit which is only £8.50 plus £1.50 postage. This is a complete bargain for what it contains:-
Exciting 'for grown up's only'
A magical, personalised letter from Santa
Personalised reward charts for December
The children aren't the only one's who are being watched - they need to report back to Santa about their elf's behaviour too.
Well done cards
The quality of this stationery is very good. High quality paper and card have been used. I just love the graphics and font, everything feels and looks very professional and I certainly could not re-create this myself at home.
A peronalised goodbye letter from our elf
A Christmas eve letter from Santa (to be rolled into a scroll)
A personalised gift bag in which to place our letter's from Santa
I can't wait to have lots of fun with this throughout December. My plan for the reward chart is that the children must do one kind thing every day and they'll get a star. I plan for our elf to bring the 'well done' cards half way through December during our 'North Pole breakfast' (look out for a future blog) and we will choose various times throughout the month to send an 'elf report' back to Santa and let him know how Zac is behaving. A great incentive to get the kids to practice their writing skills! I simply can't wait for December to arrive now so we can get started!
