  3. I love Elf of the Shelf!
    We have two of them. A girl and a boy. My kids love searching for them when they wake up each morning.

  4. Clever ideas! It is ur first year we are doing the Elf(a DIY version because we don’t get him here in South Africa), but it is very exiting for my 3 year old to find him in the morning!

    1. It was only our second year. This year was extremely fun because it got them into writing. Did you check out the adventure they wrote for the elf? I have a book to bind that is a great story from both of them.
