If you haven't heard of Elf on the Shelf, be prepared to start having some holiday fun! This magical Elf is sent from Santa himself to watch over your children and then report back to him every night. This Elf is like no other though. Once he arrives at your house, your child needs to name him so he can "receive" his special powers to fly to The North Pole. Once your children are asleep, your Elf goes to work! But beware... your Elf likes to cause a little mischief each night!
