16 (more) hilarious Elf on the Shelf ideas | Mum's Grapevine

Elf on the Shelf is all about creating magical Christmas memories for our kiddies. You see, elves arrive at their host families in December, with a special book explaining that these magical messengers are visiting to provide a daily report back to Santa on how well (or not!) your little poppets have behaved.

Each morning, after Elf has arrived back from reporting duties at the North Pole, he (or she) can be found in a different spot, often up to a little mischief of their own.

Here are 16 (more) fun-tastic Elf on the Shelf ideas to get you on your merry way…
