Holiday fun with elves

Many parents are using the Elf on the Shelf to help manage naughty versus nice holiday behavior. Children have a lot of fun with their adopted elf during the holiday season. The website has information about adopting your own elf for the season. Elves are available for adoption to sit in a variety of places in the home during the holiday season. Your elf will monitor the day's happenings and fly off to the North Pole every evening to report naughty or nice behavior to Santa. Parents often move their elf to a different location in the home from time to time during the holidays. Children can enjoy a treasure hunt to find the location of their elf.

The Sarasota Children's Garden is sponsoring a fun holiday event with elves on December 15 from 2-4 p.m. Children can come and learn about elves and fairies that live in the garden, create a fairy wand, and build houses for the elves. A menu of elf treats will also be offered. Parents are encouraged to call 941-330-1711 to reserve a table for your child as soon as possible in that space is limited.
