If you’re not familiar with the Elf on a Shelf, he’s a mischievous spy that reports back to Santa during the holidays!
The elf on the shelf is here to make sure the kids are on the nice list. At night when everyone is sleeping he reports the day’s behavior to Santa, and usually gets into some trouble of his own.
No matter what age your kids are they will enjoy seeing the hijinks this elf can get into. My older boys and even my husband look forward to waking up to whatever shenanigans our elf, Louie, has created.
Whether you’ve had an elf for some time and need new ideas or you’re just starting out, these Elf on the Shelf ideas are perfect for surprising your family all season long.
