I bought "The Elf on the Shelf" today and my six year old was excited. After I read the book to him and he understood what the elf does, he started to cry and told me to take it back to Target. (He doesn't want Santa to know how his behavior is at times.)
Jaxon decided to give the elf a try and he named our elf, Friendly! Tonight the cartoon was on at 8 pm on CBS. Jaxon and I loved the cartoon! It goes on sale tomorrow!
After Jaxon went to bed, I googled "The Elf on the Shelf" and found a neat website with printables.
I printed off the passport and now Friendly is holding it for Jaxon to see in the morning.
I am going to buy another book/elf tomorrow (maybe buy the little skirt to make the elf a girl) for my classroom. I know my first graders will love this activity too!
