Ok so don't hate me but its 4 months today until Christmas day!! And in the Tsamplakos and Andrews houses we LOVE Christmas!!!!
One of our ways to build excitement and good behaviour in our homes is "Elf on the Shelf" Ours is called Elvis and Lee's is called Buddy.
So our Elf's arrive on 1st December from Lapland - sent directly from the big man himself Father Christmas! Elvis flys off to Lapland every night once the children go to sleep to report on their behaviour and inform Father C of any naughtiness. Elvis then flys back to our house in the early hours of the morning and causes havoc in our house!! The children then have to find him the next morning! On Christmas Eve the children say goodbye to Elvis and hope they made the good list and Elvis goes home - to return the following year!
Its all about mummy survival and childrens imaginations and the excitement on their faces! The simple words of "Elvis is watching you" makes Honey instantly rethink being naughty haha!!!
So the world is your oyster when it comes to creating fun scenarios for your elf!!!
Here are a few of mine from last year
We've seen that theres going to be a Birthday Elf which is released in October!!!! We can't wait for that!!!
Do you have any fun traditions that you do with your children?
Have you already got Elf on the Shelf - share your best pics xxx
Happy 4 months to go
Love J xxx
