I plan to have the elves hanging from parachutes in tree branches or in the grand kids play house. Poppy and I will be making the parachutes from garbage bags and string. A wrapped package will be nearby (along with the elf sleigh). Inside the wrapped gift will be Elf Mailboxes, Elf Passports and this year's Santa letter. The Elf mailboxes are new this year and are one of my wild ideas for the grand kids to communicate with Santa via Elf Mail.
Inside each mailbox is an "Elf Report" Folder which will allow the Magic Elves to take notes on the grand kids naughty or nice behavior and report to Santa. There is even a mailbox that's coming special delivery from the North Pole to NeeNee and Poppy's house. We must have an Elf Mailbox at our house for when the kids come to stay. The kids can also use the mailboxes to send messages to Santa.
You really must read last year's elf events (open link and scroll down the page to read all of their elfcapades) to understand how this all works. If you've not done this with your young children or grand kids... YOU MUST! It's fun and a tradition they will remember forever.
Tomorrow I will be posting some of the Elfcapades that will be happening this year. In the meantime.......REGISTER TO WIN A BOY AND GIRL ELF.
