Today my kids found our silly Elf on the Shelf  inside of one of their water bottles for school. He drank all the water and climbed inside. Oh you should have heard my kids roar with laughter when they found him.

The big question was HOW did he get inside, the kids thought maybe it was magic but then later in the day they saw the label come off a bit and they discovered his secret trick to getting inside.  He must have peeled back the label cut the  bottle in half, so the top would hinge open. Then he claimed inside and  closed the top and stuck the label back in place. What a clever Elf he is 🙂

Our silly elf did the last thing… He wanted the last drops of water in the bottle because he was so thirsty from his trip to the north pole.
