Black Elf on the Shelf Ideas
It’s been a busy month filled with lots of Elf on the Shelf fun, and so many creative ideas, plus, last-minute ways to display the Elf. This year in The Worthey House we’ve added a new Elf. A black Elf on the Shelf doll. But we can’t decide on a name, do you have any recommendations? This little guy is now a part of our family, at least until the December 25th. Then it’s off to the North Pole!
He joins our three other elves in creating tons of fun for our boys. Although our boys are now teens and no longer believe in the magic of the Elf, they still laugh when they see what the elves are up to. Bless their little hearts for indulging this Christmas obsessed mom for yet another year! But let’s be real honest, most days, our elves sit in the same spot, because who has time to keep moving the Elf?
As I started to think about the elves I was collecting, I knew it was important to add a black Elf on the Shelf. Growing up I played with a diverse collection of dolls. But, the black Barbie dolls were few and far between. And looking for a black Cabbage patch doll, forget about it. Finding an ethnic doll was next to impossible, it was like finding a needle in a haystack! Why does diversity matter? It matters because when you look in the mirror, you see a reflection of yourself. You look for that in the music you listen to, the brands you love, the celebs you follow, and the toys you receive.
I want my boys to own toys that look like them, which is why they were stoked when Marvel’s Black Panther came out earlier this year. Having superheroes of color is a very important thing on so many important levels.
Fast forward to 2018; and thankfully it’s easy to find those dolls that look like me, you and just about everyone! I have such a diverse group of friends and I am sure it matters to them as well.
I also had someone mention getting a black elf and doing a roundup of ideas. So, this is what prompted today’s blog post, and I hope you enjoy these ideas.
Elf on the shelf ideas using a Black Elf
We’ve seen this idea before- an Elf perched on an ornament. I switched this idea up a little by adding in, not just any ornament, but a Rae Dunn one! If you didn’t know, Rae Dunn merch is super popular right now, and you can check out my post about Rae Dunn Christmas display ideas.
It’s a Christmas countdown.
