It's almost summer time and the last thing on your mind is Elf on the Shelf, right? But, has your happy little elf stopped by for your child's birthday? Yes. There is a new Elf on the Shelf Birthday Tradition that many elves haven't heard about yet, and it might be coming your way.
I first heard about this new elf birthday tradition months ago, but I couldn't find any information about it online, so I wasn't sure if it was real or not. Then, today, as I was looking on Amazon for something, I saw it: Elf on the Shelf A Birthday Tradition.
What is Elf on the Shelf Birthday Book about?
On the website, it's described like this:
The Elf on the Shelf: A Birthday Tradition tells the little-known story of how Santa’s finest helpers celebrate birthdays at the North Pole—and how you can invite your scout elf to share that tradition with YOU! Each kit includes special instructions for families on how to invite their scout elf for a birthday visit, and a festive birthday outfit for your scout elf to slip into before your big day!
There's more! The folks at Elf on the Shelf made it really easy for you to:
1) Sign up for a special birthday greeting and receive a special message from the North Pole on YOUR big day.
2) Invite your Elf to your birthday party by asking Santa if your scout elf can visit on your special day.
3) Make a birthday donation to Charity Water and help children around the world who need clean water.
4) Print off everything you need for your Elf on the Shelf Birthday Party. (below is a screen-shot of everything that is available on their website.)
Want to throw an Elf on the Shelf Birthday Party?
There are DIY invitation templates, birthday plates, cups, hats, cupcake wraps, thank you notes and more! It's a very unique birthday theme and it might be fun for a Christmas in July birthday too. You can access all of the printables on the Elf on the Shelf website.
