One of my kids’ favorite Christmas traditions is our Elf on a Shelf! I was a bit hesitant to start the Elf on a Shelf tradition, but it’s turned into an awesome Christmas writing activity for the whole family! Each time our elf, Danger, moves, she inspires a new writing prompt. Of course, we don’t want this to be all work and no play, so we always include something fun and silly with her! One of my favorites this season has been our totally delicious elf on a shelf punch!

Danger whipped up this totally delicious elf on a shelf punch for the boys to enjoy. She learned the recipe from Santa himself, and it was served at the going away party for all of the elves in the North Pole! The boys had a blast sipping their punch and writing their own stories about their favorite Christmas parties to share with Danger!
