Mom Sets Out to Prove That Her Family's Elf on the Shelf Is Real

He does exist! That's the sentiment two kids are feeling after their parents set out to prove to them that the Elf on the Shelf is real. While much has been made of the funny and unique ways to style each Elf around kids' homes, the actual mission of the Elf — to report kids' behavior back to Santa — is often forgotten. When her kids doubted the Elf's connection to the big guy at the north pole, she set out to prove them wrong. Some night-vision video, a string, and a sneaky mom were all it took to provide the demonstration the kids needed that their Elf really did move off his perch at night to report back to Santa. Take a look and show your kids in case they need some further proof!
