Elf on the Shelf ideas


Last year, we started the tradition of 'Elf on the shelf' in our household. Our elf doesn't arrive to watch behaviour or report back to Santa, he just comes to bring some Christmas spirit and excitement to the house. It can sometimes be overwhelming having to not only remember to move the elf but to think of new ideas everyday, so not only have we provided you with ideas and pictures, we have written you a full 25 day guide AND a shopping list, taking all the work out of it for you. All you need to do is make sure you have everything on the list and screenshot the list below.
