We are so excited to be joined by the delightful Kindness Elves this holiday season! I first heard about them on the brilliant blog, The Imagination Tree, last year and knew right away that I wanted to do it myself this year. So, when I discovered these adorable little guys at my local Dollarama in early November (gah! Christmas stuff in early November!), I immediately snatched them up. They were soft, cute and cheap — perfect for my intended purpose.
We don’t teach “Santa” in our home — we have discussed it with Naomi and explained to her that Santa is another name for St. Nicholas. So she knows that it’s just me playing a game with the elves. Nevertheless, it’s been fun to wake up to their antics. The first day of their arrival, she found them sitting on the stairs, with a little note asking that she give them names. She named the Red one “Red” and the green one “Purple” (she does know he’s green, she doesn’t have any trouble with colors or naming them).
This morning, Red and Purple asked her to help them come up with a list of names of people she loved that she wanted to show kindness to, as well as some ideas. It was fun to come up with names of all her friends and family, though she did specify the ones she was shy of and we discussed ways she could be kind to them that she would be comfortable with.
Are the Kindness Elves coming to your home this Advent season? How are you sharing their fun and antics? Tell us about it in our comments section!
