    My elf has got a partner in crime  as I ran out of ideas this year &  found another elf in the local pound shop. So they have been joining me for gin o’clock in the evening .also I caught them having a cheeky smoke this week too😁 I also found a miniature elf behaving badly sign  which is funny

    I’ve struggled previous years, but googled ‘elf on the shelf ideas’ and click into images. It’s full of inspiration

    hope this helps keep the fun going , for the kids at least 😁

    We have two elves staying with us at my parents house …. I’ve not been able to make as much mess as I have previously in the family home.


    We’ve done…

    Day one- elves turn up with brand new scarves they knitted from grandma’s wool

    Day two- elves used the scarves to capture two dinosaurs!

    Day three – elves hid at the top of the living room curtains (on the rail)

    Day four – elves at a box of chocolates! But left two for the kids at the bottom of the box because they couldn’t reach all the way in the box

    Day five – elves turned the photos on the mantle piece the wrong way around and some upside down

    Day six – dad’s house

    Day seven – they’ve got hold of some spare Christmas lights and have taken two toys hostage

    Some great ideas, might do photo one tomorrow night.

    Ive got a chalkboard tonight and elves have written the kids messages telling them to be good or they will tell Santa..hope it works😃

    Easy ones are Elves wear mummy’s make up – painted granddads toe nails whilst he slept (if grand dad or family pet lol is up for that!) – elf dresses up as Santa (cotton wool print stick to the face in beard shape) – of plays board game with another toy . If you have rice crispies cut one of the faces out of the box – just the right size for elf to stick his head through
