Elf on the Shelf Coffee Table Sled
Using a coffee table, we created a snow hill with pillows and a blanket. We went with a Frugal Elf on the Shelf Idea and made our own sled out of the upcycled cardboard box of mini cereal. Using scissors we applied string and added elf for a line of those who wanted to go on a sleigh ride.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and a elf doll. The book is poetic and in rhyme sharing the purpose of the Elf’s visits. The Elf visits each Thanksgiving. He/She goes and returns from the North Pole each evening. Every morning he can be found in a new location in the house. The Elf has been found in the refrigerator, fishing in the toilet, writing messages on the mirror or hanging from the lights. It is VERY IMPORTANT, the Elf is not touch each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. The elves return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
