Even though I am completely prepared for Christmas, we are still doing some last minute running around. Since we had to spend a lot of time in the car yesterday, we put the Elf on the Shelf in my car, up where my daughter couldn’t reach it. She had a lot of fun riding around with the elf.
Each time we got out of the car, if she was well-behaved in the store, the elf was holding a piece of candy as a reward. My husband would go to the car ahead of time and put the candy in the elf’s hands. When my daughter and I got to the car, she was excited to see the candy. We did this a couple of times. It definitely made a long day of shopping much more fun for my daughter.
