Elf on the Shelf Shenanigans from Everyday Family’s Blogging Team
We are officially wrapping up the holiday season and with Santa arriving on his sleigh before we know it, I'm guessing many of you are running low on ideas for that Elf on the Shelf you've been strategically placing around your home. So we hit up the blogging team for some photos of their elves the last couple of weeks to help you out with this last week of elf on the shelf shenangins. You will find 15 options for your little red hat friends – more than enough ideas to get you through the remainder of the holiday season of “watching for good behavior”.
Warning…there are a few naughty elves in the mix.
When placing your elf, think outside of the box – look up and find placement in high windows or wedge them behind things in your home or inside vases. Have your elf bring treats for your children or get into mischief on occasion to make the experience a bit more fun.
Our bloggers think naughty little elves can be fun! Have them dig into a favorite treat or hop onto a family pet if you're super adventurous like our blogger Tracy's elf was this holiday season. If you have older kids who you just enjoy making laugh, have your elf get into Mommy's Pinot or watch the Real Housewives like our blogger Natalie'self did.
If you're having a low-key mischief kind of day, then plop your elf into the tree, stocking or in a chandelier. Another fun option, tuck your elf into one of your kid's shoes with a treat to find like our blogger Debi did with her elf.
The elf on the shelf is a fantastic way to bring additional magic into the home during the holiday season. If you haven't discovered this little treasure, you should. Each morning, your child's eyes will light up while searching around to find your elf. I know my girls are always excited when they discover “Henry” each and every day. And, no matter how simple or elaborate we go with his shenanigans, they love each and every day of the magic that is the elf on the shelf.
Oh, and if your elf doesn't move because, say, you “stay up too late” and he couldn't make it back to the North Pole – be ready to be interrogated and to have some kind of similar story in place…not that I know from extensive personal expereince or anything.
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? What kind of shenanigans does it get into?
