24 Sanity-Saving Elf on the Shelf Ideas

24 Elf on the Shelf Ideas - SavvyMom

It’s the end of November which can only mean one thing in the parenting world. Come December we’ll see the return of our festive friend (foe?), Elf on the Shelf. With the little guy in red’s arrival comes almost a full month of planning fun and original ways to pose him around the house to the delight of our children. Can you even remember your old Elf on the Shelf ideas?

Kids may love him, but parents have a very divided view of EOTS. He’s been a source of great pressure and stress ever since he hit the shelves in 2005. But, love him or hate him, your kids will be expecting him—and we wouldn’t want to start the Christmas period with sad little faces, now would we?

Because you have enough to think about in December, we’ve made it super easy by compiling 24—one for each day of the month—easy to create Elf on the Shelf ideas.

So no need to come up with something clever when it’s bedtime and you’re tired and totally forgot. Again. Simply bookmark this page and return to it each night for a quick and simple way to surprise your kids.

You can thank us later.

Elf on the Shelf, if you are unfamiliar, is a sort of holiday tradition that involves placing a little elf doll around the homes in various positions in order to convince children that they are being watched. You know, by Santa. It is, at best, a prime example of late capitalism and, at worst, the physical manifestation of the police state.
