I have to admit it. In years past we have not been that creative with our Elf on the Shelf.
He has jumped from room to room, and that is about it.
I’ve often wondered who are these parents who create elaborate scenes with their elves? Do they not sleep?
This year, I’m determined to have a little more fun with this dude.
I’m not talking about going over the edge crazy.
But I think it’s time to mix it up a bit. So to get me inspired, and hopefully you as well, I pulled together 50 Elf on the Shelf ideas.
Just pick a couple to do this year. Why should the kids have all of the fun?
But not everything was an Elf Fail! Every week this season, I’m going to share what our elf has been up to. And for even more fun things to do with your Elf on the Shelf, check out:
