It is finally December and that means it is time for the Elf on the Shelf to arrive!

I must say that I am super excited for the whole elf tradition this year. My kids are at the perfect age where they understand what Christmas is and have so much excitement over it all.

Since this is our first year really introducing the Elf on the Shelf I wanted to make it extra special. But that doesn’t mean this year didn’t start off with a few hiccups.

A few days after Thanksgiving, my husband and I began digging through the attic to find all of our Christmas decorations. Let’s just say our attic is one place in the house that really needs a good sorting through. We may not be as bad as that last hoarders episode you saw, but everything tends to end up up there.

Anyway, we took down the Christmas tree, the ornaments, the stockings, you name it. As we were setting up the tree I wanted to sneak off and have the elf magically appear.

I opened up the original box that I had kept the elf in and to my surprise, all of his clothes and accessories were neatly packaged in the box.. but the elf was nowhere to be found.

I spent the next 45 minutes up in the attic digging through boxes of baby clothes, old work uniforms and every box I could find. That elf was nowhere!

We then swapped and my husband went up to look for him, thinking maybe he’ll check a place that I had missed. Another half hour later and still no luck.

I then texted my good friend to complain about our dilemma and she causally said, “Have you checked by the clothes?” And so I decided to go back up in the attic one more time and take another look by the boxes of baby clothes I had recently organized.

AND THERE HE WAS! The elf was just lying on the ground in plain sight. I don’t know how my friend somehow knew it was there, and I really don’t know how two grown adults spent over an hour searching and didn’t see him there.

In any case, the elf had arrived! Christmas month could continue!

After all of that, I wanted to make sure that we made the elf tradition really special this year. I decided to create some fun elf note cards that I could write on each night. And today I wanted to share them with you!

For the first night of the elf being in our home, I wanted him to set up a fun little scavenger hunt for our son to do. This free printable Christmas scavenger hunt that I created is perfect for younger kids and will surely make memories.
