First off, you name your elf. Ours is named Clancy. While the kids are asleep, we move the elf to a new location so when they wake up, they have to run and find him. They can't touch him and he stays in his special place all day until they go to bed and he gets moved again.
Our elf has a funny personality. He likes to do silly things like tie everyone's shoes together or put toys in the refrigerator. But he's a thoughtful little guy and always leaves a present for our kids before flying off to the North Pole one last time on Christmas Eve.
Our family loves the elf -- every single one of us. It's a hoot to see my husband get excited about finding a new spot for the elf every night!
It may seem like a doll and a book but it's so much more than that. For us, it's a family tradition and a great way to kick off the Christmas season.
