How the Christmas Packs work …
Please note: The images above show our 2018 packs, however our 2019 version will have brand new illustrations and feature extra items to make this our biggest and most magical pack yet!
There are no ‘rules’ as such on how to use the pack. You are free to take the contents and embellish the story to suit your own children. You can keep it very simple – you don’t need to put lots of planning into it! But let us explain how we think it works best:
The magic begins …
An exciting little delivery from the North Pole arrives for your little one! They will find a letter from the elves asking for help making enough magic to power the sleigh on Christmas Eve. They can do this by being kind, well behaved and spreading lots of Christmas cheer. The elves will also leave them their very own personalised Magic Chart and cute dinky elf stickers to keep track of how well they are doing and a Wish List to complete and send back to the North Pole!
During December … Christmas magic is created!
They elves will leave little behaviour cards everyday in December to let your little one know just how well they are getting on. Will they be green, yellow or red? The aim is to collect as many green cards as possible! They may even find a star of the day card if they have made lots of Christmas Magic that day!
This next bit is entirely optional, but it sure adds a lot of excitement! Why not leave little rewards or mini targets from the elves? In our house, this is in the form of chocolate coins. The elves send these with a green card as a ‘well done’ reward. If they collect a certain number of green cards, the elves might even leave a small surprise too! (eg. Christmas book).
Remember to leave out their Wish List Delivery receipt from Barnaby in the Mail Room to confirm it has arrived safely at the North Pole!
Postcards, updates and top secret forms!
In your pack, you will find 4 postcards to leave handwritten notes from the elves. Why not leave one after a nativity play for example to congratulate them on their performance. In 2019 we are including a summer holiday postcard which you can send during the year and a birthday one too for special notes on their big day! The elves can also send their Christmas Update Report at any time during December and imagine the excitement when they find a secret form from the Toy Factory showing that their gift has been made and ready to pop into the sack on Christmas Eve.
23rd December – Christmas Eve Eve!
On 23rd December, the kids will get their final Christmas Magic card. Before they go to bed, remember to leave out their completed Magic Chart for the elves to collect!
On Christmas Eve, your little one will find a ‘Thank You’ postcard from the elves, thanking them for their amazing help – their Christmas Magic Mission was a success! There’s now enough Christmas Magic for the big man in red to make his long journey around the world delivering presents. Along with this, they get a special Nice List Certificate.
Doesn’t this all sound like great fun? It’s a wonderful way to add even more excitement and magic during December, as well as promoting good behaviour, kindness and the spreading of Christmas cheer!
Ready to order?
If you are introducing the Christmas Magic Mission to your little one for the first time, you will need to order a STARTER pack. If you are a returning customer, you can either choose a COMPLETE REFILL or a BASIC REFILL pack. The COMPLETE pack is for those that don’t still have their little behaviour cards from previous years. The BASIC refill DOESN’T include the behaviour card set, warning or update cards.
