First I’ll tell you about the Birthday Countdown and Game.
Each kit includes a display-ready felt wall hanging with a delightful, 28-pocket Advent-style calendar for counting down to the big day! Each of the 28 felt pockets may be filled with small trinkets or notes from parents or the family scout elf. Simply place the cupcake in the pocket that represents how many days are left until the birthday arrives, and each morning the child can move the cupcake ahead, one-by-one. The last pocket has a special star on it and represents the child’s birthday!
When the big day arrives, simply flip the board over to play the Birthday Game – a North Pole favorite! Children will wear a blindfold and take turns trying to place special birthday candles on the giant cupcake.
I love that this is 2 in 1. You can count down until your child’s big day and then on the day you can play a special game that every child will love. Leilani is learning more and more everyday and when it comes to Holidays and other special events I like doing countdowns for her because it helps her understand the question she asks everyday “how much longer??” With something so creative like the Birthday Countdown from the Elf on the Shelf it’s both easy and fun for children 3 and up to countdown until their Birthday and look forward to playing a nice game the whole family can enjoy on their Birthday.
Another new tradition you’re going to love is the Birthday Chair Decoration Kit
I absolutely love that we can now own everything our scout elf needs to decorate a Birthday Chair for our kids! In the story The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition it shows how much a scout elf LOVES to celebrate birthdays and that they especially love decorating for the special birthday boy or girl.
Each kit includes everything a scout elf needs to design a birthday seat that will delight any birthday girl or boy on their big day. The chair can be customized with the child’s name and age, if desired. It’s constructed of the finest material Santa could find and is durable enough to be used year after year. I also love that Santa included a matching polka dot birthday hat like the one your scout elf wears. Leilani is super excited to see how our scout elf decorates for her birthday at the end of the year!
