Inspiring Elf On The Shelf Ideas

Christmas is coming and so is Elf On The Shelf. Here is some Elf On The Shelf inspiring ideas to help you plan the month.

My kids are really excited about Elf On The Shelf visiting again this year. He has been visiting our house from the North Pole for the past two years. He isn’t one of Santa’s spy sent to report on naughty behaviour. Eddy is all about inspiring play in our house and helping to count down to Christmas.
