With 3 children, we are always going to birthday parties and I am always trying to think of a creative gift idea. Kids love to paint and I love to give gifts that are keepsakes. So, with the upcoming arrival of Elf on the Shelf, I decided to create the "Elf House." I packaged a bird house with paint brushes and washable paint and I attached a note that says:
Elf is arriving soon and he needs a home
So here is a house for you to make Elf's own
Get creative and have fun painting
When you are done let the paint dry
Then perch his new house high on a shelf
So when Elf arrives he'll know just where to fly!
