SOCIAL distancing measures are likely to stay in place in the UK well into December with no one exempt – not even the Elf on the Shelf.
And in preparation for his return families are getting isolation houses for their elves this Christmas.
Not only that but Santa’s little helpers can also expect to be decked out in their own mini masks as they enter the family home.
The jars are being sold by the company Moonlight Creations, who shared the product on their Facebook page.
Captioning the post they wrote: “Elf on the shelf isolation house!
“Those little guys need to isolate too! Countdown the days on the chalkboard side panels . Comes with an elf sized face mask! 15 dollars each (£11.62)”
The post has since been reposted across Facebook with parents calling the idea “genius” as they won’t have to move the elf for two weeks.
One wrote: “That’s 14 days we won’t have to move him!”
Another added: “That’ll save you having to think of something for Elf to do for the first 2 weeks of December.”
“Genius!!!!!!!! ???” added another, while a third commented, “That’s brilliant!!!”
What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a toy which is sent by Father Christmas to watch over little children and make sure they're behaving properly over the festive period.
Parents are supposed to move the puppet around the house each day to create the illusion that he is popping up somewhere new and always reporting back to Santa.
Elf on the Shelf has it's own official website, where elves can be purchased from £29.95 including the accompanying book.
It's not exactly easy to think of a brand new set-up for the elf every single day, but luckily there's plenty of inspiration out there.
