More Elf on Our Classroom Shelf Fun!

Hey everyone,
I'm so excited to show you what our silly classroom elf, Lillybell, was up to last week.  I think I had a little too much fun with our elf on the shelf this year haha.

Lilly spent the day hanging out in the tree in our classroom.

Then Lillybell and her friend Socks took a cruise in Lillybell's new car!  My husband and I can get pretty crafty.  I brought home a tissue box and said I wanted to make a car for Lillybell... He said "if we're going to make a car, we're going to make a good one."  So one shipping box and a little paint later, this is what was created.  I'm pretty impressed with this little hidden talent my husband has :).

Socks stuck around to hang out with Lillybell for the rest of the week.  They decided to play a little Jenga.

They spent the next day hanging out on our "First Day of 2nd Grade" picture frame.

On their last day in our classroom, Lillybell and Socks painted portraits of each other.  As you can see, Lillybell is a much better artist then little old Socks. They also left the kiddos a note and some candy :).

I loved having the elf on the shelf in our classroom this year.  My kiddos seemed to enjoy it too.  Each day the filled out a page in their "Elf on our classroom shelf" journal and explained what Lillybell was doing that day.  They also got to draw a picture of what she was doing that day, which was so fun to see!

Now I get to relax (kind of) for two weeks!  Maybe I can use this time to get our house clean and catch up on some Lock Smock orders! :)  I hope you all have a relaxing and restful Christmas break.

Oh! I almost forgot!  Now the following photo does not reflect the education system in our county… I'm sure the person that did this moved here from somewhere else ;).

I know it is kind of blurry so if you can't see it is says "Marry Cristmas."  Yikes!  

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
