Whether you're a mom of toddlers, preteens, or full on teenagers, chances are you've heard of Elf on the Shelf and probably even have one in your home. Sure there are some moms who don't want to add one more responsibility to the Christmas to-do list, but for those who enjoy setting the scout elf up every night, the ideas are truly endless for any age group, even for adults. If you're interested in stepping up your elf game this holiday season, take note of these impressive Elf on the Shelf ideas that will go down in family history.
Every year, I truly look forward to coming up with creative ways to position our elf, Alpha Michelle (iPhone's autocorrect for a voice text of me saying "Elf on the Shelf"). The truth is, however, with everything else going on around the house and with family in town, I don't always get the chance to strategize my elf game far enough in advance to really knock it out of the park. And I absolutely despise repeating the same ideas over and over again. Needless to say, I'm constantly on the hunt for creative Elf on the Shelf ideas that my kids will tell all their friends about, and this list showcases some pretty impressive ideas, but not all of them require a shopping spree at the craft store, or to be mapped out way in advance.
In order to make sure you, too, have plenty of fresh and creative ideas this year, take note from some of these impressive Elf on the Shelf ideas that others have come up with from Christmases past. And now that we've put Thanksgiving to bed, the timing couldn't be better.
