Are you participating in Elf on the Shelf this year?

Does your family have an Elf on the Shelf?

These little scouts sent by Santa himself magically appear on December 1 and pop up in different spots in your house each day.

They help keep children on their toes by reporting back to Santa at the North Pole each night, letting him know who has been naughty or nice.

We’d love to know what the elves have been up to in your house.
