Brilliant!!!! Have your Elf leave the kids a note asking them to plant his magic seeds (Tic Tacs) into a bowl of sugar for a sweet surprise. When they wake up the next morning the seeds will have grown into cookies!
Jesus, Santa, and the Elf on the Shelf.... I absolutely love this idea about showing kids the true meaning of Christmas while keeping a lot of the fun in it as well. The letter from Santa was fantastic! Doing this!
"For everyone that has an elf on a shelf!" --Ok, seriously. WTF is this "elf on the shelf" crap? I see photos of random elves doing weird things around the house & I find it completely ridiculously stupid. Who has that much time on their hands? And who finds that amusing? Weirdos.
