This could be the gift you are giving this year!! An Elf Kit!

One of my most favorite ideas is An Elf Kit!!  I found this cute box at Hobby lobby and painted it up. (Don't look too close, some obvious touch ups are needed) Then into the box is added all the things our family needs for Christmas morning like a screwdriver for the battery hatches that are screwed shut, a box cutter, and wire snips, trash bags for wrapping paper, batteries etc.  Once it has what we need it goes under the tree with the rest of the presents waiting for its time to shine Christmas Morning.  Here are some suggestions of things you could put inside it and also a poem I wrote if it is being used as a gift. 
loves to all!!




Film, Camera

Paper and Pen

Trash Bags


Light bulbs

Ornament hooks



Box opener

Camera batteries

Memory cards or film

Batteries & tapes for camcorder

Disposable camera


Wire cutters

Screw driver

A Folder to put cards, receipts, tags, instructions in all one place

An Elf Kit
PS if you use my poem please give credit where credit is due.  Thank You!!
This is your Elf Kit

And here is the plan

It will help Christmas morn

I’m positive it can

Put it under your Tree

A place to store it no doubt

 You’ll never have to worry

Not one single kiddy will pout

Everything you need is in there

And ready to go, its true

It’s filled with all the important stuff

Especially our love for you!

  4. What a great tip! I remember when we were kids how awful it was to get some great toy but have no batteries for it. (And back then you couldn't even find a gas station open on Christmas.) Super idea!
