The 25 days of Elf on the Shelf are in full swing – but if you’re struggling to find creative ways to display your family’s elf, you’re not alone. A Canadian couple with four kids turned the struggle into success with their very own rendition of Elf on the Shelf.
The man in the photo above is dad Joe Wynberg – and yes, he became the elf this year. So, I’d say he and his wife, Megan, just won the award for the best Elf on the Shelf idea ever.
On her Facebook page, mom writes, “So we finally caved and decided to do the “Elf on the Shelf” thing. The kids are going to be so surprised! We named our elf FLE and he will be in some pretty precarious spots over the next 24 days! Enjoy.”
Well, mom doesn’t lie. FLE has been up to some pretty interesting things so far including duct taping himself to the wall, hanging out on the chimney and making snow angels in the house. Come on, you know you want to make snow angels in the house, too.
Megan has even made a few cameos in the holiday photo series.
This is the sort of stuff that really brings me joy. How creative and cute are these parents? And dad seems like such a good sport about having to dress up in that ridiculous costume. They’re definitely giving their children some really special memories.
