Elf on the Shelf gets busy around the farm


Has Elf on the Shelf hit your farm yet? The popular Christmas tradition involves a special scout elf that is sent each year from the North Pole to help Santa manage his naughty and nice lists. When a family adopts and names an Elf on the Shelf, the elf receives Christmas magic and flies to the North Pole each night to report to Santa about all of the day’s shenanigans.

Each morning, the Elf on the Shelf then returns to its family and perches in a different place to check out the action. As soon as they wake up, kids often race around the house looking for their family’s beloved elf.

We scoped out social media and found that Elf on the Shelf isn’t always just lying around waiting for children to find it, some farms have been putting the scout elves up to work:
