Elf on the Shelf with Bible Verses:

We have been doing elf on the shelf for years now. My original problem with elf on the shelf was telling my kids that an elf was watching them to be sure they are good. I want to teach my kids that Jesus is watching so be good all year! So, I use my elf on the shelf as a messenger for Jesus instead of Santa! The elf comes in December because we want to celebrate the birth of Jesus all month long. This is how I decided to integrate the elf on the shelf into our family. I really wanted to set up these adorable elf on the shelf scenes but I had to find a way to do it our way! Here are pictures of some of our past scenes and the bible verses that went with them!

 

The elf on the shelf returns!!!

This year he brought his sister! Matthew 5:16: Show off your good works!!

The elf goes camping!

Genesis 3:1-6 & Romans 5:12: There is a serpent in the woods, watch out!

The camp fire was made with balls of paper, tootsie rolls and construction paper.
