The Elf on the Shelf
The Barn at both Little Budworth and Lower Stretton are proud to have become an official Adoption Centre for some very special scout elves sent from the North Pole.
The elf on the shelf tradition is a special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists. When a family adopts a scout elf and gives it a name, the scout elf receives its Christmas magic and it can fly to the North Pole each night to tell Santa Claus about all of the day’s adventures. Each morning, the scout elf returns to its family and perches in a different place to watch the fun. Children love to wake up and race around the house looking for their scout elf each morning.
There are two simple rules that every child needs to know when it comes to having a scout elf. First, a scout elf cannot be touched; Christmas magic is very fragile and if a scout elf is touched it may lose that magic and be unable to fly back to the North Pole. Second, a scout elf cannot speak or move while anyone in the house is awake! A scout elf’s job is to watch and listen.
Scout elves typically appear in their families’ homes at the beginning of the festive season. On Christmas Eve, the scout elves return to the North Pole with Santa Claus—until next year!
Each box includes an adoptable scout elf who plays hide and seek, an artfully illustrated children’s book and an official adoption certificate. Also available in The Barn are elf pets and clothing for your elf. We hope all of them find a loving home for the festive season.
