So it’s almost that time of year again… It’s the return of the elf. If you, like us, have the infamous Elf on the Shelf visit you every December then you’ll also recognise the late night panic that you’ve forgotten to move them into some new funny or exciting position for the kids to find him in the next morning. This year I’ve decided to get organised by planning ahead and wanted to share Elf on the Shelf inspiration with you.
A little bit about our elf… his name is Woody, this will be his third year of visiting us and he brings SO much joy to our children. Every year Woody brings advent calendars with him on 1st December and a Christmas Eve bag packed with goodies on 24th December. However, that still means another 22 days to fill with fun, inventive scenarios that our little elf needs to get into so this year I’m turning to Pinterest for some inspiration. You can see my board here.
Some of my favourites that I’ve found online include:
- Elf Twister
- The Elf Ball Pit
- The Wrecking Ball Elf
- The Drumming Elf
- See more here…
I’ve also created my own schedule of Elf on the Shelf moments including a delivery of movie night essentials and a treasure hunt.
I haven’t included any Corona-inspired moments but I’ve seen lots of isolation boxes, mini masks and two metre rule pictures. And if you’re looking for props shops like B&M, Poundland and The Range have lots of elf inspired products.
I’ll try and post pictures of all of our Elf on the Shelf moments on my Instagram (@theaspiringyummymummy) and please do share any of your pictures – I’m always looking for more inspiration.
Don’t forget to set an alarm every night to make sure you have the elf in a new place – nobody likes the 11pm panic, especially on a school night!
