It is almost that time of year again! That time of year when elves leave the North Pole and head to the homes of children all over the world to make sure they are behaving well and report back to Santa. Elf on the Shelf started as a cute little elf who kept watch on boys and girls to make sure they were going to end up on Santa's Nice List but he quickly turned into an elf who got into a lot and I mean A LOT of hijinks stressing parents out everywhere. What if I told you it didn't have to be that way? What if I told you there was a kit you could purchase and print out that included all of the activities you needed for your elf's daily visits?

Elf on the Shelf Activity Kit
I always liked the idea of Elf on the Shelf when I didn't have children and I was excited to have one once my kids were old enough to *get* it.
I did not like however, the idea of having to turn my house upside down each night and create massive displays and messes because of the little guy.
Last year was our first year with our elf (Happy, is his name). The fun was in looking for him throughout the house to see where he was stationed for the day.

My kids didn't need to see him swimming from toilet paper strung to the chandelier.
Each day I moved him from one shelf to the next, keeping him low enough to be spotted but high enough so he wouldn't get touched or get knocked over.
