Get your kids in the Christmas spirit by making Elf on the Shelf part of your holiday tradition. Created by a mom whose kids wanted to know how Santa knew if they had been naughty or nice, this fun game gets the whole family involved.

The elf's sole responsibility is to watch over your kids and report their behavior back to Santa each night. At the end of the day, move the elf to another location in the house. When your children wake up, they get to track him down in his new spying spot. In addition to having happy kids playing an exciting game, you will have lil ones conscious of their behavior since they know the elf is watching.
