Elf upon a shelf school – Read about this frozen lesson!

an elf upon a shelf
Elf upon a shelf at elf school

Do you sometimes find,
by yourself,
a sitting elf
upon a shelf
just before Christmas?

If you do, you know that they do some really silly things. Sometimes, they draw faces on your bananas.  Sometimes, they hang from the ceiling.  Other times, they will tie all of your shoelaces together!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a shelf elf!  They just help me check on you when I’m a bit busy around here.  I can still see how kind you have been, and how you’ve been doing your best to behave if you don’t have one.

Clumsy the Elf is teaching the Elf upon a shelf Training Program today.  He must teach the elves the biggest rule for scout elves: scout elves cannot be touched.  If they are touched, they lose their magic!  They have to come back to the North Pole to get more magic and rest.

Clumsy asked a helper elf to show that one touch will freeze a shelf elf.  He forgot that I have to unfreeze him to give him back his magic. He was stuck for an hour until the helper elf found me!  I had to go give him a little boost of magic.  He is ok now.  I think his students saw how important it is not to lose their magic.  Next time, Clumsy should show them with a video, instead!   No one wants to be a frozen elf upon a shelf!

Clumsy is also showing them how to make snow angels.  One of the elves said that Clumsy filled the whole classroom with snow!  That is going to be messy, but so much fun!  Does it snow where you live?  If so, do you like to make snow angels? Or, maybe you like to have snowball fights!

Oh!  I hear Mrs. Claus in the kitchen making hot chocolate.  I had better run to go grab a cup before the elves drink it all.  I will write again soon!

Santa Claus

P.S. Tell me about your elf upon a shelf.  What is his or her name?  What is the funniest thing he or she has done? If you don’t have an elf yet, what would you name yours if you got one?  I look forward to reading your answers below!  You can click here to tell me or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
