18 Cute Elf On The Shelf Printable Props That'll Make Life A Breeze
The 'Elf on the Shelf' has been around since 2004, but it seems to get more popular every year. I suspect that the ability to share hilarious photos of your elf's exploits on social media is one driving factor in that. Whether you have kids or not, it's hard not to be amused by the many ways parents set up their elves every night in sweet and silly situations. I had no idea that there are so many
Elf on the Shelf printable props to help bring those scenes to life.
I'm not sure if I'm super excited or totally dreading when my own children are old enough for the 'Elf of the Shelf' phenomenon. On the one hand,
it's a pretty big commitment. On the other hand, though, it seems incredibly fun, and free printables make it a lot easier to put together elaborate scenes. Your elf can pack its bag for a relaxing vacation, start up a side hustle to sell lemonade, or even read a teeny tiny book to fellow toys. You name it, and your elf can probably do it (with a little help from you and your printer, of course).
Here are 13 printable props for your
elf's nightly adventures.
