This was the night that our Elf on the Shelf, Charlie, made his official appearance! He appeared on the roof of the car as we went to leave. My 6 year old and his friends were ecstatic and ran screaming through the neighborhood!
We all got together with intentions of watching the Elf on the Shelf movie, but the kids had such a fun time playing with each other, we never got to watch the movie. They also made a super cute hand-print snowman ornament. Sadly, my son was so excited about Charlie that he tripped and smashed his ornament, so I don’t have the finished product to show you.
There were also all kinds of fun treats, complete with a bag of Elf Food (a.k.a. Peppermint Chex Mix) for the kids to feed their elves. Try these fun cookies too. My Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies/
