...well, essentially the Aroha elf tradition is an alternative to the Elf on the Shelf idea but DOESN’T promote ‘naughty’ behaviour and crazy antics (which to be fair we have ENOUGH of around our house already) and places the emphasis on positive, character-building activities for kids. Not that I’m an elf on the shelf hater ... BUT I love the idea of teaching love, kindness and gratitude with a hope to raise the next generation of kids to move away from the entitlement attitude which is increasingly commonplace. Aroha elves come up with ideas to ‘do good’ and ‘show love and kindness’ to others throughout the festive season ...ideas like: bake cookies for your teachers, give toys to charity, buy a Christmas gift for a child in need, give homegrown veggies to the neighbours, make Christmas cards for family etc.
Ps. Another bonus is that you don’t HAVE to do something EVERYDAY because lord knows December is busy enough without attending to an elf each and every day
Currently available in two styles Lille Bee Aroha Elves are a beautiful gift for all ages.
