It is that time of year to take out your Elf Magic! This is our first year celebrating this holiday tradition with our daughter. She is uncertain this year if Santa is real, so this Christmas tradition is coming at the perfect time for our family.
If you are not familiar with Elf Magic, here’s how it works:
The Elf Magic tradition begins when your child writes a letter to Santa and asks if he can let an Elf come visit between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then, a boy or girl Elf (they have different color hair and skin tones!) with a unique name chosen for them by Santa arrives for each child at your home. A poem and Tips from Santa explain how to sprinkle the magic “North Pole Snowflakes” on your Elf at night to make them come to life and enjoy fun Elfcapades® while your family sleeps. These might be mischievous like getting stuck in the Christmas tree or “decorating” the house, or might be silly like hiding out in the freezer because it reminds him of the North Pole. It has been reported that some Elves might even be helpful doing one of your child’s chores for her or helping mom fold the laundry after everyone is fast asleep.
Our Elf arrived on Friday afternoon. My Princess was very excited. When we wrote to Santa, she was expecting a real Elf. She has seen the movie Elf and loves Buddy, so in her mind an Elf was going to stay with us until Christmas Eve. After she got over the disappointment of having a stuffed Elf, she realized that having this cute little girl Elf would be easier.
My Princess sprinkled Elf Magic North Pole snowflakes on her Elf, who she named Hannah, before bed. The snowflakes magically bring her to life so she can play at night when my Princess is asleep!
We gave our Elf animal crackers and water the first night. The crackers crunch like the snow at the North Pole and the cold water reminds our Elf of melted snow. I decided to hide our Elf in the pantry with the other animal crackers – because one animal cracker wasn’t enough -she wanted more.
Finding her in the morning was exciting for my Princess. She loved that the Elf wanted more animal crackers. The Elf even made a bit of a mess with the crackers which my Princess gladly cleaned up!
How is Elf Magic different than other elf traditions?
With Elf Magic, the magic is not lost if a child touches the Elf and children never have to worry that an elf is watching over them to report to Santa on their behavior, like some other traditions. The Elf Magic Elf is not used to modify a child’s behavior; therefore the Elf becomes the child’s best Friend Forever. Elf Magic is Christmas Spirit you can hold in your hand and feel in your heart.

Wow! What a twist from Elf on the Shelf. I always try to stick with the original ideas though. I think I’m just a sucker or loyal or whatever when it comes to modifying an idea that’s already become so great.
Elf Magic started in 1956 – I think before the others. But recent years, and great marketing I think have made other similar products stand out. We love our Elf Magic though. My daughter literally carries it with her all over the house. It is fun for us!
