They are those Elf visitors that appear around this time every year. But what do they do?
The Elf on the Shelf is a visiting Elf from the North Pole to help Santa sort out his naughty and nice lists. You give your Elf a name and can fly to the North Pole each night to tell Santa about all of the day's adventures that your kids have done. Each morning, the Elf then returns to its family and perches in a different place by each morning to watch your kids awake. Children love to wake up and race around the house to look for their scout elf each morning.
Do you do the Elf On The Shelf at your place?
