In case you don’t know what Elf on a Shelf is, it’s a toy that stands on a shelf during the night and watches over the kids. And in case you don’t know what a toy on a shelf is, a toy on a shelf is a toy on a shelf. That's what a toy on a shelf is.From the internet to the bottom of your stairs, many people love a friendly elf on the shelf, who ensures that kids wake up to adorable fun each morning. But what exactly is an elf, and how do they work?

Elf

By now, most people have heard the story of how mother-daughter duo Carol Aebersold and Chanda Bell started the Elf on the Shelf phenomenon based on a Christmas tradition they created as a family. So many people have followed in their footsteps every year. But if you haven't done it before, the rules are simple: The Scout Elf watches over your family, and reports back to Santa each night who is being naughty and who is being nice. After these nightly trips, they return to a new spot each day. Oh, one more thing — if your kids touch the elf, all of its elf magic goes away. (Meaning you're responsible for the elf's every move.)

The first day of Elf magic is always the biggest, and many choose to celebrate the arrival of the elf in a big way. You can buy this personalized, engraved-wood postcard, which reminds kids about the elf rules, and use it year after year, or you could make something similar yourself at home with cardstock. The framework seems easy enough, but there are so many possibilities of places to hide the elves and different scenarios to put them in — and there are a lot of days in December to come up with ideas for. If you need help getting started on your Elf on the Shelf journey, here are a few ideas. Some are funny, with elves wearing different costumes and disguises. Others are sweet — especially when kids find them in the kitchen, preferably near a plate of treats. And others are bordering on the "naughty" side, for sure. Make a list, check it twice, and you'll be set with ideas for the whole month. (Source: www.goodhousekeeping.com)
