We all know Christmas is a time for giving, and it can be a wonderful opportunity to teach children about kindness and charity. But did you know there's another way of teaching these skills?
The Elf on the Shelf is a book that tells the story of Santa Claus sending elves to watch over children at Christmas time. In order to do so, the elves need to change location every morning so they can watch what's going on. As a result, children are taught to behave well in order not to let the elf get captured!
Parents can use The Elf on the Shelf as a teaching tool to help their children learn about responsibility, kindness and joy. Kids love it too because the elf brings magic into their homes.
