It’s December and that means that for many of you the Elf On The Shelf has arrived! One tradition I like to do every year is a North Pole breakfast on the first weekend of December to celebrate the elf’s arrival. It just so happened that this year the 1st December landed on a Saturday so that was perfect!
The contents of our breakfast varies each year but basically it will be something a bit more special than the usual cereal. Sometimes I’ve managed to get Christmas tree shaped crumpets (I think they were from Asda) with pan au chocolate or croissants. We’ve even had star shaped doughnuts in the past for breakfast pudding!
This year I did a cooked breakfast for me and the kids had chocolate pop tarts. They’ve never had them before so they were very excited and loved them!
The table is decorated with fairy lights, Christmas themed tableware and crackers. We have Christmas songs playing in the background which always gives it a festive atmosphere and adds to the fun. We’ve played games like pin the ears on the elf too.
As well as food I get something special in to drink as well. This year we had J2O glitter berry. Yummy! Other years we’ve had milkshakes, specialty fruit juices etc.
There’s lots of different options for a North Pole breakfast and of course you may do yours completely differently. I hope this helps give you some ideas though. It’s certainly a morning treat that everyone really enjoys and sets us up for a great day.
You could plan it for the day you are putting up the Christmas decorations or perhaps visiting Father Christmas to make it extra special. However you choose to do it, enjoy!
