Do you have a December birthday? Does Elf come to visit at any time in the year to celebrate your son/daughter(s) birthday? We personally have three December birthdays and Elf has to be on his game with birthday Elf on the Shelf Ideas!
Does Elf on the Shelf come on your birthday?
While Santa’s birthday and Elf on the Shelf’s Birthday are mysteries, both really love celebrating the birthdays of young boys and girls. In fact, it doesn’t have to be December for an Elf on the Shelf can make a special appearance on a child’s birthday. The Elf can make a visit 365 days a year to celebrate a birthday. This can be done with a sweet happy birthday Elf on the Shelf note in the mail or this might be a one time day visit complete with a birthday cake, birthday breakfast and even a special birthday gift.
To incorporate an Elf doll on your special boy/girl’s birthday, start with reading Elf on the Shelf A Birthday Tradition. You can order the Elf birthday book online which comes with a cute Elf on the Shelf cupcake costume. Decorate your Elf doll in their special Elf on the Shelf birthday tradition outfit and sing a little tune of Happy birthday.
If you don’t have access to a Elf birthday book, perhaps send Elf on the Shelf birthday letters or a special birthday note in the mailbox. This can be the first step in the start of a birthday celebration.
Now that you and your child have talked about a birthday and their North Pole friend, they might ask for a special visit for a birthday. This is where you can introduce one of many Elf on the Shelf Birthday ideas.
