So I know Thanksgiving isn’t even here yet but I am consumed by Elf on the shelf this year! I really love having new traditions on holidays and this one is perfect for kids!
I have never done Elf on the shelf before, but tons of my friends did it last year and shared all of their ideas to Facebook. My girls aren’t too big on Santa, so I just didn’t see the need for an Elf. I think.
For any of you who are starting this year, you can purchase Elf on the shelf pretty much anywhere. Target is where I would go to pick it up. It comes in a cute box and you can pick a boy or a girl. The kit includes a story book that you can read to your children as a way to introduce your Elf to your children.
That is fantastic and all, but I am a little concerned that my 7 year old won’t buy it if she sees the elf in the stores, so I am going for a non traditional type of elf. I am using a Barbie! Yesss. Our Elf on the shelf will be fierce hunny! So her name will be Jezebel and she will be arriving on December 1st! I can’t wait!
I am using one of the girls old Barbie dolls and I ordered this adorable little crochet santa outfit from etsy! She will also be wearing silver high heels! Indeed the fiercest elf on the shelf ever! I will update this photo with my own when the outfit arrives. Etsy shop name is Nobodyknitsitbetter 🙂
Moving Jezebel is going to be fun for sure. I have seen some great ideas around the web, but I already have a couple of good ideas under my sleeve that I can’t wait to share with you! I will add new photos to this post every day in December, hopefully it will give you some ideas! Until then, here are just a few of my favorites!
