Elf on the Shelf Welcome Back-7254-BLOG

Our elf has arrived and brought a new Scout Elf friend! My girls made a “Welcome Back” sign the night before they arrived, and when they woke up the next morning, our Scout Elf and his Elf Pets® Reindeer had returned with a new GIRL Scout Elf and an Elf Pets® Saint Bernard Pup.

The elves brought their own Scout Elves at Play® kit to surprise us with each morning, some extra changes of clothes, and some new pajamas for the Elf Pets®.

To celebrate we threw a Welcome Back party complete with the Scout Elf Party Pack! The party pack came with plates, cups, napkins, party hats, cupcakes toppers, stickers, fun games, a tablecloth, and a centerpiece! Everything you need for the perfect elf party!

My girls were thrilled about having a new girl Scout Elf, but my youngest daughter was extremely excited about the new Elf Pets® pup.

Unlike the elves, they are meant to be loved and hugged. My girls take turns sleeping with the pup and the reindeer every night.

We served large cupcakes and mini cupcakes for our elf friends. We played pin the tail on the reindeer, and we also wrote letters to Santa with our neighborhood friends.

The Letters to Santa comes with Santa’s Special Paper that can be baked in the oven Mrs. Claus’ Magic Press until your letter shrinks to elf-size so they can easily be carried to the North Pole.

Then after the letters have been read by Santa, the elves return from the North Pole and hang them on your Christmas tree as a beautiful keepsake ornament! My oldest daughter asked for a guitar, and my youngest asked for a baby doll with a bottle.

We have chosen the name Rainbow for our new girl Scout Elf. She seems to be adjusting well to her new surrounding, and surprising us with unique ideas that the girls have never seen before!
