There are so many ways you can invite these sweet little magical helpers into your Christmas home...the possibilities are endless!
You could make Martha Stewart's pinecone elves!
These wooden dolly clothes peg elves are so cute and they are easy to make too!
Maybe you could bake a big batch of elves snickerdoodle cookies!
Or you could make some Happy Elf Cookies!
Family Fun has a great idea-you can make this cute Santa and Elf Shelf for your mittens or hats!
My favourite elf idea is wonderful if you have small children but it would be fun for older kids too...
The Elf on the Shelf is a little elf who comes straight from the North Pole! The "official" Elf on the Shelf (or any other elf!) arrives at your home early in the Christmas season to spend the holidays with your family.
Each night the Elf on a Shelf returns to the North Pole, while your children are sleeping, to report to Santa regarding their behavior. The next morning, after the children wake up, they will magically find the elf back from the North Pole, resting in a different spot - in the pantry, in the bathroom, wherever.

The Elf on the Shelf site is full of fun ideas and games that your kids will love!
I couldn't publish a post about elves without including something about the most famous elf of all! I hope you enjoy this short clip from one of my favourite movies, Elf, starring Will Ferrell.
Buddy will always be my very favourite elf!
