I was just sitting here thinking (dangerous, I know) and I thought, hey what if we had a traveling elf?

Here's how it would work, there would be a sign up list for those interested in participating. This could be a year long thing if there were enough people interested. The timeframe really doesn't matter since we all love Christmas. I have an elf we could use for this so there would be no need to purchase one and it's small enough to not cost a fortune to mail.

Once the sign up list is closed for the year (season, whatever we decide) I would mail the elf, with a few goodies, to the first person on the list. That person would keep the elf for a week (or more depending on the sign up list), take pictures to share here or we could create a special FB page for the Traveling Elf to share pics and thoughts there. After the allotted time, they would then send the elf, with a few goodies, to the next person on the list and so on.

Does this sound like something anyone would be interested in doing?

If I did the Elf, I would be in on this. It would be neat if each person had an elf to send. Imagine a child's surprise with all the different Elves showing up!

Sound like fun. I did a traveling bear one time and it was a blast.

if your willing to include uk in it i would be up for it. my kids would think it great that 1 of their "elves friends" had come to visit.

would an online journal be set up so everyone else could track its journey/show the kids etc

I'm sorry, I totally dropped the ball on this for this year. We are getting ready to go on vacation for a week and my husband will be deploying soon after so once all that is done, I will sit down and come up with the details and then we'll plan on starting in January. It will be a year round activity, not just for the holiday season.
