We love our annual Elf tradition. Thomas (named after a boy my daughter had a crush on when she was little) appears the day after Thanksgiving and has adventures every night until Christmas Eve, when he returns home to the North Pole. Thomas has brought a lot of joy and laughter and helps us to dabble in Christmas magic every night while we decide on his next adventure. But around mid-December my husband (AKA the chief Elf wrangler) starts to run out of ideas. I created this handy Elf Ideas Calendar as a go-to resource for Elf households whose Elf is getting a little worn out.
The image links through to a printable PDF but be sure to find a good hiding spot for it. I would not recommend printing and posting this on the fridge!
