Jesus Centered Elf On The Shelf Idea- It Struck My Fancy
Need an easy idea for that pesky Elf that lives everywhere but the flipping’ shelf??? I have one for you. You’re welcome. All kidding aside, the whole Elf on the Shelf thing is pretty daunting sometimes. That is why I have this super EASY Jesus Centered Elf On The Shelf Idea, and you know what…It Struck My Fancy.
If you want to know my feelings about that darn Elf that drives me crazy you should check out my other easy idea for your Elf, you can read that by clicking here. I really do like the idea of it, but I just get overwhelmed when it is actually time to set the darn thing up. I have been searching for some easy ideas and I figured I would share what easy ones I have come up with in the past. Ones that I haven’t actually seen on Pinterest yet (not to say that no other person has done this).
Jesus Centered Elf On The Shelf Idea –
Place the Elf with your Advent Wreath
Can’t get much easier than this! And oh so stinking cute. I was so thrilled with this idea. I took the picture after the kids had discovered him. My kids LOVE lighting the Advent Wreath. I have four kids so they take turns each week. We started with the oldest the first week so she got to light her’s for four weeks, the next week the second oldest got to light her candle and kept going for the next three weeks…and so on. The following year the second oldest got to do the first candle and the oldest, the last…we just go down the line each year (trying to make it fair).
So ANYWAY, looks like Buddy the Elf was excited to get to light a candle, he showed up with the matches ready to go. My kids are old enough that I trusted the matches being out…you may not want to do this with yours.
Have fun! Hope this idea works out for you.
