No shelf is complete without an elf the past few Christmas’s and these little tricksters get up to all sorts in the night! So if you shelf has an elf read on.. (and if it doesn’t you can buy one here)
Here are some ideas to help you survive December
You elf always needs to arrive in style so why not start his visit off with a bang! Personalised Balloon displays like this are available from Sugar Star Events in Droitwich
North Pole Breakfast
On arrival day you can also do a North Pole breakfast, its like a normal breakfast, but cooler (see what I did there? Cooler, Cold, North Pole? Well it amused me anyway) – Find out more about that from Lisa over at her blog here
All Wrapped up
Not actual elf poop, obviously, chocolate drops will do!
Up, up and away
You can even buy pre made items for your elf including this balloon set from The Range
Have a smashing Christmas
Ah yes.. the loo roll
One I do see a lot is the loo roll chaos. Wrap it round the tree, hang it from the lampshade or throw it round the room. The more mess you make the better
If you are stuck for ideas this pack from the range covers 5 days of elf fun – its available at The Range
Breakfast is serv… oh
Arts & Crafts
Use the Force Elfie
Why not add a twist to your elves visit by incorporating your favourite things – Star Wars for example!
Don’t play with your food..
It’s snow joke being an elf!
Elves mis beer-having
Taking the pea….
Reach for the sky
I’ve got my eyes on you
Taste the Rainbow
Christmas Eve is here
When it is finally time for the elves to disappear to the
loft, I mean North Pole for another year, there are lots of ways for them to say goodbye. You can take this opportunity to leave your children a Christmas Eve Box like the ones from Holly and Ollie
Can you solve the puzzle?
Your elves don’t just have to cause chaos. They can also bring fun activities for your little ones to do.
