26 ingenious Elf on The Shelf ideas
Have you heard of the Elf On The Shelf Christmas tradition? If you're not already frantically trying to hide your Elf in a million different places every day, you soon will be...

What is Elf On The Shelf?


The tradition has been building momentum in America for a few years now and is making its way to the UK, with each year seeing more parents getting obsessed with the little cheeky-faced character.

The Elf On The Shelf tradition was started by a book which comes with a small Elf character. You read your children the story about the naughty elf, then each day you position your elf figurine in a different, humorous pose for your children to find.

The Americans traditionally start their Elf On The Shelf the day after Thanksgiving but over in the UK we tend to start around the 1st of December (let's not start Christmas too early!).

December is a tough enough time as it is for a mum without having to try and think of new idea for the blimmin' elf every morning.

With that in mind, we thought we'd make things a little easier for you and give you 26 ideas for how to position your Elf - one for each day in the run-up to Christmas and even one to announce his exit from your house.

We've even got a homemade elf craft so you can make your own little army of cheeky elfs

Enjoy!
