One of the most popular new Christmas traditions over the past few years is The Elf on the Shelf. Love him or hate him, the mischievous elf has become many a family’s favourite and is great for keeping the children’s behaviour in check. The elf watches children’s behaviour during the month of December and lets Father Christmas know how they are getting on.
After your children have gone to bed, you place your elf in different positions for the morning, normally showing him getting up to no good. The elf often leaves a note telling the children exactly what they’ve been up to during the night. It might seem like a lot of hard work, but it’s a great way to interact with your children and get even more excitement around Christmas; your little one will rush down the stairs each morning to discover where the elf is and what he’s been up to.
You can now personalise your elf so that he wears different outfits every time he visits to check on the kids. There are loads of fun outfits that are great for storytelling too. Here are just a few of our favourite Elf on the Shelf outfits available online that you can buy for your elf this year.
