Elfie the Elf

I LOVE Elf on the Shelf. Our Elf's name is Elfie and we have so much fun with him. Because our December was going to be hectic, I even made a schedule for us to follow so I knew I had all of the supplies at the house and I wouldn't have to think to hard on what to do with Elfie.
Elfie showed up this year bringing all of us breakfast! He brought Christmas Tree cakes, powdered donuts, and hot chocolate and the kids loved it. They were so excited to see Elfie, too!
Day 1: Elfie brought us breakfast

Day 2: Elfie turned the milk green!

Day 3: Elfie zip lining in the living room
Day 4: Elfie was caught fishing

Day 5: Elfie drew on our pictures - the kids loved this one

Day 6: Elfie was riding Rudolph

Day 7: Elfie was taking a bath in marshmallows

Day 8: Elfie decorated our Christmas tree with the kids underwear

Day 9: Elfie was playing cards with friends

Day 10: Elfie was building snowmen with marshmallows

Day 11: Elfie was riding Lightning - Blake did NOT like this. He actually pulled the car from under Elfie and he fell to the ground. He had to apologize and he kept talking about how Elfie had to go to the hospital to get better.

Day 12: Elfie needed a chocolate fix

Day 13: Elfie made breakfast!

Day 14: Elfie followed us to French Lick and showed up in the closet hanging from the hangers

Day 15: Elfie making a snow angel in sugar

Day 16: Elfie left a message on the bathroom mirror

Day 17: Elfie was planking on the ceiling fan

Day 18: Elfie made a mess in the living room with toilet paper!
Day 19: Elfie left stuff to make our own Christmas tree candies! Austin and Katie spent the night so they got to make one too!
Day 20: Elfie got comfortable in the pitcher

Day 21: Elfie brought the kids some gum

Day 22: Elfie brought the kids some crayons and a Christmas tree picture to color

Day 23: Elfie painted everyone's noses red like his and rudolph's! Kylie was so excited!

Day 24: Elfie left seeds for the kids to plant so that something will grow overnight

Day 25: Look what grew...Cookies!
(Kylie told me later that she wanted grass to grow)

Day 26: We found Elfie with his head in a bag of M&M's

Day 27: Elfie spelled out the kids' names with cheerios

Day 28 (last day): Elfie left reindeer food for the kids to spread on the lawn
And lastly here is my calendar I made up so I didn't have to think too much, but still be creative. There was a few changes I made along the way but this was very helpful since I got all of necessary products before Elfie came. I will be doing this next year as well and there will be even better ideas for Elfie! I know I had so much fun!
