If you have an Elf on the Shelf, he’s probably a pretty fun little guy! Our elf, Peter, delivered a great present to us a few weeks ago and I wanted to share it with you!

Remember when I told you our elf brought me a disk with Santa’s stationery? This is when he did that, along with some magic seeds!!

This is what his letter said… (You might want to show your elf. Tell him to copy this text and insert it into Santa’s Stationery if he wants to do the same thing!)

 

Dear____________,

YOUR ELF’s NAME HERE  has told me you have been very good! He was so excited to get back to your house that he wanted to bring you a present. Because you have been behaving nicely, I told him he could take you some of his magic elf seeds.

These seeds are very special and you must be EXTRA good for them to grow!

* * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * *

Follow these instructions carefully:

Plant your seeds in a big bowl of sugar. Then sprinkle with salt, a little each day.
Please take note, if you sprinkle too much they will just fade away.

Be extra good and very patient for the magic to work on the seeds.
For if you misbehave, you might break the magic. I hope you will do good deeds.

If you follow these directions and behave just right.
You should get something special in two short nights.

* * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * * *  * *

If you keep being good, I will bring you both a special present on Christmas Eve.

Love,
Santa

I have been looking around the internet and saw someone’s elf do this, so maybe our Peter is friends with their elf?

    My 12 year old was was holding my 8 year old daughters elf the other day. She was screaming for him to stop. So last night Melf took a photo on my son's ipod with my son having a tiera & feather boa on with a note that said.. Connor please don't touch me again. Next time it'll be worse. Your friend Melf.

    Our silly little elves have been busy since they arrived on November 30th! They've taken the Barbie Golf Cart & been chased by Rex from Toy Story, had a snack date with Ariel & Prince Eric on our coffee table and made swings out of toilet paper rolls & red ribbon. Today they were laying in a cereal bowl on the kitchen table! What will these elves get into next =)

  4. Well those were from Santa's magic bakery. Maybe check a local bakery and see if they have a shipment from Santa.

  7. Just found your site and I LOVE IT! TY for the downloads which are beyond adorable. Thank you again and blessings for a new year! XO

  8. Our Rudolph the elf had a pool party for all the other toys in the bathroom sink, my kids loved it!

  9. Our Toby cut open one of the old pillows on our son’s bed and pulled the stuffing out, scattering it around the room. He was holding a sign that said “Let it Snow”. It was a pillow that needed to be replaced anyway.

  10. Elf magic will be coming over for 2 family’s this year…

  11. I just can’t believe how classy they look. They’re awesome! Thanks for sharing all these wonderful things. I just hope I could get them all done before Christmas.

  13. love this! our elf just couldn’t stand it anymore, and he ate a big hole in one of my son’s gingerbread houses. (the more easy-going of my children, who thought it was hilarious, thank goodness!!) http://fullplatecookinglessons.blogspot.com/search/label/elf%27s%20antics

  14. Amy, you have the free download for the Cookie Party on the right side bar of this Post. I have tried to to download it a couple of times (even updating Adobe Acrobat) but it will never open. The Comments on that Post have other people who can’t get it to download also. Please advise what I can do to download this before it is no longer free.

  15. That is soooo cute! Thanks for sharing! ;)

  17. Too precious. Our little Elf, Jingles gets into everything. What a cute idea you have here.

  18. Last night our Elf Will tp’d our Christmas Tree!! Wrapped toilet paper all the way around it! Kids thought it was a hoot. The night before Will taped a whole bunch of pictures of himself on our tv and wrote “you are watching Will t.v.! By far the best fun we have in the mornings before school. Wish I would have thought of Elf on the Shelf. :)

  19. I LOOOOVE this!! Doing it tonight!!
