Last year for Christmas we bought Madison Christopher Pop-In-Kins. I am so excited to start this yearly tradition.
Each year you read Christopher's book. Everyday you hide Christopher and the kids can search for him in his hiding place each day until Christmas. He is a magical elf, and kids should not ever touch him or he may lose his magic. I bought him on Amazon, but I am sure you can find him at your local bookstore too! There are 2 types of the elf on the shelf. I think Christopher is cuter. You can see my post comparing them last year. Click HERE.
Here is Christopher hiding in his first hiding spot of the year.
