We had a great time introducing our Elf On The Shelf, Henry, last year. Taylor (4) was a bit terrified after reading the story. The thought of a small elf watching her all day really freaked her out. She warmed up to him after seeing all of the mischief he got into each morning. I'm looking forward to bring Henry back in a couple weeks! Here are some of our ideas from last year.
Snowman Donuts (a peace offering on the first day)
Elf Made Lunch
Working on the Laptop
Left Grow Capsules for the Girls to Finish
Wrapped a Present That They Got to Open Early
Eating Ice Cream
Carried Away By Balloons (Dum Dums)
Toilet Papered the Bathroom
Taking a Bubble Bath
Brought an Ornament (so we can remember the year we introduced Henry)
Henry left a note telling the girls to finish adding the ingredients and bake.
Watching a Movie on the iPod
Tangled in Christmas Lights
Henry Has A Cold
Hanging from the Fan
Riding a Horse
Reminding the Girls to Brush Their Teeth
Henry the Explorer
Riding in the Car
With a 1 year old in the house, we had to put Henry out of reach.
Making Faces on Family Pictures
Going to Grandma and Grandpa's House
We traveled the days leading up to Christmas. In order to get Henry with us, the day we left he was found hanging out in the car. The next day, he made his way inside grandma & grandpa's house.
