Elf on the Shelf Ideas ~ Week One

Last week, I shared our fun  
that our Elf planned for us to start 
the month of December.  
Here's what he's been up to since December 1st...

 Day 2 ~ Caught in the corner of the living room making Q-tip snowflakes.

 Day 3 ~ Found sitting on the shelf in my son's room.

 Day 4 ~ Sneaking chocolate chips in the pantry.

 Day 5 ~ Left us a message on our dry erase calendar

 Day 6 ~ He switched our shower curtain to our Winter Snowflake one,
then took a shower himself.

 Day 7 ~ Taking a little break for an Elf mani/pedi 
in the girls' room.

Day 8 ~ He left us a cute 
Candycane Garden Planting Kit.

Day 9 ~ Unfortunately, he could only leave us a note and no special candy canes grew :(

Day 10 ~ Luckily the next day was better 
and some M&M-filled candy canes 
grew in the Candycane Garden.

The fun continued the following week ~ check it out HERE!

Have your elves been having fun?
Make sure to visit our Elf on the Shelf Idea party for some North Pole inspiration.
