Start a family tradition with your own Christmas Elf......
The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition                         $29.95 plus $8.95 Priority S&H

The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is an activity the entire family will enjoy. Based on the tradition
Carol Aebersold began with her family in the 1970s, this cleverly rhymed children's book explains that Santa
knows who is naughty and/or nice because he sends a scout elf to every home. The elf watches the
children's behavior and reports it back to Santa each night. By morning the elf returns to its assigned home
and hides in a different location, allowing the children to play a delightful hide-and-seek game. Each
product comes with its very own elf doll enabling others to begin this fun-filled Christmas tradition
themselves.

The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition includes an exquisite 10" x 10" hardbound children's book,
illustrated by award winning artist Coe Steinwart, a vintage-like pixie elf doll that sits approximately 8" tall,
and a certificate commemorating the adoption of the elf by a family, teacher, or other group. Additionally,
this unique gift includes a festive keepsake box for convenient storage.

The purchase of The Elf on the Shelf allows you to give more than a gift. Instead, you are giving a priceless
treasure...the creation of lasting memories.

The Elf is a wonderful gift for the whole family - we suggest gift wrapping it and have it appear at the
front door sometime around Thanksgiving, with a letter from Mrs. Claus explaining how your family
can use it.   ("special family members" get the fun of moving the elf each night to help Santa).  Be
prepared because elves can be pretty mischievous and love to play tricks on the family too!

1.  Remove elf and book from box. Read the story with your family!

Other Fun Ideas & Tips:

1.  Always place the elf up high to keep the children from touching him.
2.  Use fake snow to leave a trail around the house, to show where the elf has flown around.
3.  Dribble cookie crumbs on the elf and leave him next to the cookies, as if he ate some.
4. Children love to anticipate the elf's appearance. Try to pick the same day every year for the elf's arrival at your home.     
5. The elf may fly to a new location any time the children are not looking.

PLEASE NOTE: The elf uses special water at the North Pole to bathe. So please do not put it in the bathtub with you.
