I needed a quick idea (because of course I was already warm in my bed when I realized I needed to move the elf). Spelling with Kapla blocks. Perfect
I actually forgot the elf last night and blamed it on the fact that his brother and I were up late and the elf probably didn’t get to move… Slater was bummed. I can’t forgot tonight!
From the other night, our elf made mini pancakes. This is another idea I’ve seen online and thought it was so cute. Slater loves pancakes and he really wanted to eat these pancakes. We reheated them but I guess they weren’t so good.
So it was day 15 of Dec and our new advent calendar was still bare. Slater asked every day when we might get candy in the little sacks. So the dilemma was do we start at day 16 and have nine days of candy or fill it all and Slater gets the first sixteen days? The elf solved that and filled it all… and Slater was delighted… totally hyped up the rest of the day. The elf is in charge of the advent calendar from here on out. It was a hit. Especially because he brought the large chocolate gold coins
