Does Elf on the Shelf go on vacation?

Does Elf on the Shelf travel with you?
It is up to each family, mainly the parents, if Elf travels with you. If you plan a vacation with the Elf, it is important to make sure he can be transported for your journey. This can be done through a number of ways, like Elf meeting you at your vacation destination or you can transport Elf using a jar. Elf can also go on his own vacation while you are on vacation.
How do you transport elf on a shelf?
If you are about to leave on vacation, leave Elf a note and let him know you are about to travel. The Elf will take this note back to Santa. Typically Santa gives some extra magic dust for his/her adventure with you. Santa will also put Elf in a mason jar so you can carry the Elf but Elf does not get touched.
Elf on the Shelf Tip: In this Mason Jar Elf on the Shelf Idea, try using a plastic jar or container if a child is transporting Elf on the Shelf.
