While we’re all pretty well accustomed to Santa arriving on December 25th, more and more homes will be hosting a houseguest a whole lot earlier – in the shape of a magical Christmas Elf. Christmas Elves tend to pop up for the month of December, keeping an eye on children and providing a little motivation to stay on the nice list!
Whether perched on the mantelpiece or magically moving about through the night, they’re a delightful festive tradition that the whole family can enjoy – because while the children will appreciate their new pal, it’s a chance for parents to flex some creative muscle and have some fun of their own.
After all, your family’s Christmas Elf can do just about anything you fancy, from encouraging a little exercise outdoors to setting up storytime from the bookshelf! You could pack a donation box for Team Hope or a local charity, or even kick off family movie night in style; truly, the possibilities are endless...
Check out a dozen of the ideas you might use for your home’s new hero in the coming weeks – and get your thinking cap on to discover even more ways that the visitor from the North Pole can spread festive cheer between now and Christmas morning!
If you fancy bringing the creative fun to the kitchen, then check out some recipes to deliver a taste of Christmas – and for tips on how to enjoy all the fun of the season without breaking the bank, read up on ways to cut the cost of your Christmas Day.
