Make Elfin Magic
Elf on the Shelf is the hottest new holiday tradition and we know why. This interactive Christmas hide and seek game (based on the picture book written by mother and daughter Carol Aebersold and Chanda Bell) is fun for the whole family. Kids enjoy waking up each morning to discover new elf shenanigans, while parents have a blast creating elf mischief all night long. Need a few ideas to get you started? We’ve got you covered.
