Here is a peek at our adventure with Elf on the shelf…
first off… I need to explain our reindeer.
my two older girls are really too old for the whole elf on a shelf thing but we like some quirky fun at our house… but I really didn’t want to spend the $30 adoption fee to have an elf join us… so my oldest and I set out on a mission to find a cheap knock off version…
enter, Randall… for the low price of $5.99 we were SOLD
the story of Randall is similar to the elf, Santa lost the naughty and nice list and Randall is on a mission to rewrite it. His story book name is just Randall… but we like to call him Randall on the Mantel (our knock off Elf on a shelf).
now lucky for my kids their Grammy loves them enough to adopt a $30 Elf… so we have both 🙂
next I would add that the key to the creative Randall/ Elf adventures is all in the planning. I looked all over the internet and Pinterest to find my inspiration. we started December 1st so I have a list of 25 different ideas, each night a quick look at the list and I have their nightly activity.
