Better late than never! My cousin, Merry, got me interested in the whole Elf on a shelf phenomenon. I love the idea of doing something for Christmas every day in December.
Yesterday I was in Hallmark because I had a coupon, and I ran across Everett the Elf and his Magical Shoe. Everett lost his shoe while helping Santa, and the shoe will leave ‘elf magic’ fun every day in December until Christmas. A tiny Everett sits in the shoe, and there is room to put a note and supplies for a craft or other things for an adventure. I’ve heard you can’t buy them anymore, but I’ve posted his story here!
Yesterday’s adventure was mainly searching for the shoe, but we also made a Buzz Lightyear cut-out. I imagine we’ll have plenty of simple adventures like that one, but hopefully we’ll have some really exciting ones as well! I can’t wait for Everett to come out again this year – we had so much fun with him last year! We went to go see Christmas lights, made cupcakes, and did lots of other fun things. It’s a great way to keep the Christmas Spirit alive through the whole month!
