Elf on the Shelf Idea Roundup
An elf for each kid. That is my plan for this Christmas. I love Christmas, planning for Christmas, and I can’t wait to put my Christmas tree up in a couple weeks. I’m ready. We have never played “Elf on the Shelf” at my house. My daughter is a little older so that whole mystery and magic of Santa has gone, but the baby is just beginning. I needed some ideas, and I hit the mother load when looking on the interweb.

General Elf on the Shelf Ideas
Some of the ideas are repeats on the posts but a lot have unique ideas you might be able to pluck out.
Some people are just so darn creative. I’m not one who can readily pull an idea out of the air and implement the plan, so these blog posts were a wealth of information to get your Elf on the Shelf started.
Under five minutes works for me!

Elf on the Shelf Ideas for Teens!
Creative Elf on the Shelf ideas for older children. I want to keep the magic alive for my daughter who is 11. She no longer believes, but we have a little one in the house. These new traditions are not only for him, but to ignite the magic of Christmas in all of us. I just love cutting the mattress tag and posting pics of himself! Maybe my daughter’s Elf will post himself on her FB page! That would be really cute!
Enjoy these posts! What has your Elf done to your house? Does he or she has a name? I am way excited and cannot wait to show you all in December the mischief our elves get into!
