Elf Academy provides kids younger than 6 with the skills to become certified Santa’s Helpers. On Saturday, December 8th, 2012, from 10am to 2pm, kids complete a series of crafts at fun and festive activity stations at Carolina Place’s south courtyard entrance. Each participating child will receive a personalized Elf Academy certificate signed by Santa and Rudolph. (I wonder what Rudolph’s signature looks like.) There is tuition for this academy. It is free. Carolina Place has many other holiday activities planned as well. Stay tuned and you’ll find all of them listed here on Charlotte on the Cheap.
