Easy Elf on the Shelf Ideas: Part 1
The Elf on the Shelf is a new family holiday tradition that has become well loved by all. Kids love the fun surprises that await them each day, and parents love Santa’s spy reminding little ones to stay on their best behavior.
If you’re looking for some elvish inspiration, then look no further. We’ve scoured the internet and collected the very best Elf on the Shelf ideas!
- Baking Fiasco: If you don’t have plans for your elf to roll around in a bunch of flour, you might want to rethink your plans. The kids will love waking up and seeing their elf concocting some fun Christmas treats. Plus, it’s an awesome excuse to make some holiday treats.
- Sprinkle Overload: There’s no such thing as too much sugar for elves! Tonight’s mischievous act involves sprinkle angels.
- Disconnecting to Reconnect: This is a great setup before a nice family brunch. Get the whole family to participate and reconnect over a delicious breakfast.
- Eating Cookies: Your elf ate all of the cookies! Set him up for this silly scenario and then surprise your kids with a batch of cookies to replace the ones the elf ate.
- Being Part of The Family: Your elf wants to be considered one of the family! He put a little self-portrait into your family photos.
- In a Secret Club House: This requires a little bit of crafting! Put your elves in a Santa-scout only clubhouse to observe the naughty and nice behavior.
- Making a Toilet Paper Snowman: Your elf wants to make a snowman! This is a fun and simple way to set up your elf and decorate your bathroom for the season.
- Doing Laundry: Use some doll clothes and string to set this scene; your kids will think it’s hilarious, and you may even convince them to help you do some folding later.
- Interrupting Breakfast: Do your kids have a favorite breakfast cereal? Think of how surprised they’ll be when they see their elf poking his head out!
- Making Coffee: Your elf has decided he doesn’t love the taste of coffee… but you can get delicious hot chocolate K-Cups! Treat your kids (and yourself) to a morning mug of hot cocoa.
