It’s just around the corner; the scent of the trees, the lights, the decorations, the family traditions that have been passed down throughout the years. It’s Christmas Time! Just the sound of it brings a twinkle in your eye and a smile to your face. Families getting together to spend time with one another, exchange gifts, to laugh and love one another. As the holiday gets closer, there is one tradition that is still fairly new, but is quite popular. It’s Elf on the Shelf.
The Elf on the Shelf Tradition
As the story goes, it is said that Santa sends out his Elves to scout out those who are naughty and those who are nice. Each day coming in from the North Pole, these Elves go hiding throughout the house, playing hide and seek with everyone. Sometimes these Elves are found looking sweet and innocent. Other times they are found, well, doing something naughty. If the other toys in the household get involved, then it becomes the ultimate game!
If this is your first Christmas presenting Elf on the Shelf to your children, add a sheet of Christmas Themed temporary tattoos as part of the introduction to this tradition. From Snowflakes to Reindeers to Elves, these sheets will boost their excitement for the upcoming holiday, and for the game of finding their Elf every morning. If you want something that’s a bit more unique, create your own Elf on the Shelf temporary tattoos with your child’s name on it.
The Hunt is On
That pesky Elf sure does know how to hide, but he always manages to leave a trail. What’s a better way to start the holidays off right than with some Metallic Snowflake Temporary Tattoos to lead you towards the Elf’s secret hiding spot. Gather the snowflakes up while looking and when he is found, celebrate the victory by wearing them! Feeling a little sparkly? That little Elf might be tempted to apply some glitter temporary tattoos to a mirror or mug, just to show that he was there and is hiding again, waiting to be found.
Naughty Ideas for your Elf
We all know that not everyone or thing is always so innocent and sweet. Every now and then, that sneaky little Elf manages to get himself in a little bit of trouble. Why not have a little fun by sticking some temporary tattoos on an unsuspected toy or windows. They are just as easy to remove as they are to place. A little baby oil or rubbing alcohol, and one would never know that the Elf was up to no good and having a tad too much fun. He’s already hiding again, waiting to be found.
As the holidays get closer, our lives do become a bit more hectic and stressful. We sometimes tend to forget that it’s about family, spending time together, making memories and passing traditions on. Make this holiday extra special by handing out custom temporary tattoos and snap some pictures to share with all those around. It will give your Elf on a Shelf some news to pass back to Santa this year.
