Last year we bought the girls The Elf on the Shelf book and elf. It was so fun finding new hiding spots for her and watching Sam try to find her each morning!
This year I saw an idea on Pinterest for a North Pole Breakfast the morning your elf arrives! As soon as I saw it I knew I HAD to do it for my girls! Our elf comes the Sunday after Thanksgiving so I got it all set up the night before so the girls would see it as soon as they woke up!
It was very inexpensive to put together and it is such a fun new tradition we started!
Unfortunately both of my girls have been battling the stomach flu this weekend, so I don't think they enjoyed it quite as much as they would have if they were feeling 100%, but they still loved it!
Here is our North Pole Breakfast!
We had snow donuts, hot coco and marshmallows
Sprinkles left a note for the girls
Sprinkles set up and decorated Sam's Christmas tree

Snow donuts were a hit!
loading up her hot coco!
Now the fun begins! Finding new hiding spots and little tricks for Sprinkles to do each night! :)
Does anyone else do The Elf On The Shelf? Any fun ideas you want to share? I am so excited for this tradition and I am already looking forward to next year when both my girls will enjoy it! Sadie is still too young to understand this year!
