4 Easy Elf on The Shelf Ideas

That’s right its that time of year again where your great pal the Elf comes and tries to make your kids good again, have peace and quiet, and a clean house for the month of December. Personally I love this elf because it gives Bentley and I some us time in the morning trying to figure out what kind of shenanigans Buddy is up to that day ( Yes his name is Buddy )

Its Week one of Buddy adventures in the Wallace/Bindscheattel and He has obviously gotten into some trouble. I mean what kind of house do you think this is.. A nice one?

On his first day here he left Bentley a adorable little note to let him know to be a good little boy and that he’s here to watch him for Santa. If you’d like to Print the note I will leave the link here, it’s does cost $2.99.  Or if you are feelin crafty make up your own! I just went the easy route this year because I honestly could not think of anything to say for mine, and because it was 12 Am and I needed a letter pronto.

On Day 2 Buddy took a dip in our “Elf Hot Tub” which is just him sitting in our crock pot filled with marshmallows.


Day 3 he wanted to go to outer space! Wrapping the aluminum foil around him was a bit challenging.. I painted a nice backround on some card board for him to really think he was in space.

Day 4 Buddy dressed up as spider-man and hung from the roof! This was the biggest hit for my little superhero, and my big superhero.. I got the mask from here (which was a free printable). Excuse my horrible print job, we were running out of ink! 

Bentley has loved this years Elf’s adventures. We also did some super simple ideas like 

  • On top of the Christmas tree
  • Eating our Gingerbread house
  • Throwing toilet paper all over the house
  • Covering the tree in Bentley’s underwear (he loved that one)
  • Sitting and playing PS4/ watching a movie
  • Stowing away in our over night bag when went to my mothers for the weekend.
  • Eating some whip cream out of the fridge!

 

Over all this December has been a blast with Buddy the Elf! Hope some of these ideas come to your house! Happy Holidays!
