The Elf on the Shelf

I've found a fun holiday tradition I want to start with the kids: The Elf on the Shelf tells the tale of Santa's Elves who keep an eye on kids during the day and report back to Santa at night, keeping Santa in the know when it comes to tracking who's naughty or nice. The set comes with a book and an elf that you move around the house each day, inspiring (or frightening!) your kids to keep up the extra good behavior during the holidays.

I actually started this tradition last year (I didn't know about the book/elf until recently), but we do multiple elves (not quite 1 every day, but pretty close), so we have elves in every room of the house who occasionaly move around! My boys (5 & 1) absolutely LOVE it! I even put a Hermy elf (the dentist elf from Rudolf) in the bathroom and it got my son to brush his teeth with no fuss...now that's worth it right there! :)

The dentist elf is a brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing it.
