Making the decision to welcome your Elf on the Shelf for the holidays is one thing. Coming up with cute and creative ideas for 12, 24, or (ack) 30 days straight is another story entirely. Even the most dedicated DIYer can start scrambling for scenarios as Christmas comes closer, because how many times can your elf be “caught” with a box of open cookies on your kitchen counter? Elf on the Shelf kits are an easy way to keep your kid entertained and save your sanity during the holidays, too.
Typically, Elf on the Shelf kits come in two sets: 12 days, for those who are commitment-wary so close to Christmas, and 24 days, for people who prefer having their elf celebrate starting smack dab on December 1. The sets usually come all prepared with props and scenes that are elf-tastic; for example, your elf might be found ready to pucker up in a kissing booth, or with a tiny roll of toilet paper that they’re planning to deck the halls with. Step-by-step instructions will tell you how to set up and place your elf so that every morning leading up to Christmas will be sweet, silly, and magical.
Most of all, these Elf on the Shelf kits take the guesswork of what you’ll do with your elf each day and allows you to focus on what matters most to you — having fun with your child during the holidays.
Even if you’re an ardent Elf on the Shelfer, you might not have a ton of time to come up with sensational scenes for your elf in the days and weeks leading up to the holidays. Using an Elf on the Shelf kit will ensure that the antics your elf gets into are always elfin hilarious.
