Fun Elf on the Shelf Ideas


In our house we don’t do Elf on the Shelf because well… I don’t want to deal with it and I don’t think my oldest would believe the whole idea behind it.. she’s 11 and I’m honestly surprised we still get to do the whole Santa thing with her.


However, I have decided to share a few ideas that I have seen others do and some that I have found on Pinterest to give you some ideas and hopefully this will help you for the remainder of the season!

  • Cuddled with a cozy blanket in the fridge
  • TP the tree
  • Snow angels in sugar, flour, or sprinkles
  • Making s’mores over an electric tea light candle
  • Decorate toilet paper rolls as a snowman
  • Draw minions on bananas
  • Roll down stairs in a TP roll
  • Story time with kids’ dolls or other small toys
  • Bubble bath in a crockpot full of marshmallows
  • Coloring in new coloring books brought for children
  • Zip lining through the living room (or any room)
  • Elf brings new pajamas or small toys
  • Elf brings a Christmas Eve box
  • Popcorn & Christmas movie

I hope that these ideas will help you enjoy this tradition with your kids, or at least allow them to laugh and enjoy it! I don’t actually think I have heard a parent say they enjoy this little Elf after the first couple days of having to move him. LOL.

Anyway, I hope that you will check out my other Blogmas posts and continue to stick around for the rest of them! I will have a post go live every morning at 8 am!

Until tomorrow…
