The Elf on a Shelf can be whimsical, and silly, but sometimes they can teach a life lesson, which is what Marco and Henry are doing today. The lesson... Pay it Forward!

They also are teaching the lesson of doing your chores and earning an allowance, as Santa "paid" them for brushing the reindeer, which can't be an easy job with all those antlers! But rather than spending the money Marco and Henry are giving it away, so their little person can in turn pay it forward and do something nice for someone else!

Wouldn't it be great if we all followed Marco and Henry's advice and did something nice for someone today?
