Can parents touch your elf on the shelf?
Children are not allowed to touch the elf or she will lose her magic.
How does the elf on the shelf move?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas tradition where a special scout is sent to your home from the North Pole to encourage kids to behave themselves. The idea is that Santa’s little helper watches the children by day, and each night, he or she returns to the North Pole to report on whether the children were naughty or nice.
Where do elves get their magic?
The Elf on the Shelf explains that scout elves get their magic by being named and being loved by a child. In the back of each book, families have an opportunity to write their elf’s name and the date that they adopted it.
Can adults touch the elf on the shelf?
According to the official “Elf on the Shelf” website, “Christmas magic is very fragile, and if scout elves are touched they may lose their magic.” It doesn’t specify that this only applies to kids, so we’re guessing this applies to any humans. Write a note to your elf or Santa apologizing for touching your elf.
Does Elf on the Shelf leave Christmas Eve?
That means your family’s elf can arrive and leave on whatever day you choose. Generally, Santa’s scout bids farewell on Christmas Eve. The official Elf on the Shelf website explains that the elves must return to the North Pole on Dec. 24 because “toy making begins almost immediately” for the next year.
