Easy Elf on the Shelf Ideas that Kids will Love

See a handful of fun Elf on the Shelf ideas that your kids will fall in love with!

I have a love/hate relationship with our Elf on the shelf. I love seeing my kids excitement and joy when they finally find him. I DON’T love waking up in the middle of the night to the realization that we forgot to move him (it happens more than I want to admit). That being said, having a list of ideas of what to do with the Elf is a life saver for those nights when you wake up in a panic. I can’t wait to share some of the easiest Elf on the Shelf ideas I’ve found.
