Elf on the Shelf Ideas

We started the Elf on the Shelf tradition with our daughter in 2009 when she was 1. Our elf’s name is Oboe and he arrives at our house each year after Thanksgiving. The first year that Oboe spent with us, we constantly forgot to hide him in new places every night. Fortunately Lily was too young to notice if the elf stayed in the same spot 3 days in a row.

We definitely could have used the help of a printable Elf on the Shelf Calendar to help us think of new hiding spots.  Live and learn!

Lily and our son Landon LOVE the elf. They bound out of bed each morning and race to see what he’s been up to overnight. The elf is also a good threat when bad behavior looms – because he’s always “watching.” ;) Their excited reactions are our motivation on the nights that we just can’t. think. of. one. more. spot. for. the. damn. elf.

New for ’17 is our Naughty and Nice List Free Printable because, well? The holidays!

    I loved all your ideas they are all great. My favorite was the elf leaving his footprints to the door and writing “I love Christmas”

  • Reply Andrea Booker November 19, 2014 at 10:48 am

    I love them all but the snow/flour angel is really cute.
