Snowflake's Shenanigans {the Elf on the Shelf}

Elf on the Shelf

as i thought they would, the kids LOVE snowflake the elf. we're only on day two and they couldn't wait to see where snowflake would be next in our house.

well, snowflake came in from the north pole last night and tp'd our christmas tree. for real!

Snowflake the Elf TP'd our Christmas tree last night!

hubs is totally creeped out by this little elf but, HE was the one that was super excited to show the kids what snowflake got in to last night.

this morning i couldn't wait to get on the computer and create what was bouncing around in my head last night.

the idea behind the elf {if you read the book} is that he watches the children all day and then goes back to the north pole and reports to santa whether they've been good or bad. well, i like the idea of that and it's really working on my kids but, i want there to be some sort of positive reinforcement with that. i looked on etsy and found a few printables that would come from the elf or santa but so many of them say "be good or NO toys for christmas." REALLY!?!?!? good or bad, my kids are getting presents. kids are never perfect angels. and i don't want them disliking the elf. we truly do it for the fun of it anyways.

so, i made this printable that is a progress report and is positive. i'm excited to get them printed and have snowflake bring them back from the north pole later this week!!

you can get one, too! head on over to my etsy shop and pick one up. it's a digital file that will be delivered right to your inbox. you can print it as often as you'd like and use it year after year! tell your friends! spread the word! :o)
