Elf on the Shelf Names are very important when it comes to your Christmas elf. Here is the good elf on the shelf name ideas for both girl and boy elves as well as Funny Elf on the Shelf Names your kids will enjoy.
We had a great time last year when we introduced a little elf into our holiday traditions. If you are not familiar with this tradition, here is the lowdown:
The Elf on the Shelf® is a special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists. When a family adopts an elf and gives it a name, the elf receives its Christmas magic and can fly to the North Pole each night to tell Santa Claus about all of the day’s adventures. Each morning, the elf returns to its family and perches in a different place to watch the fun. Children love to wake up and race around the house looking for their elf each morning.
My kids love finding their elf every morning during the holidays. Some of our favorite activities include these Elf on the Shelf – Free Printable Christmas Activities and these Elf On the Shelf – Mini Printable Popcorn Boxes that are perfect for family movie nights!
