9 great games for your Elf on the Shelf

It may be only the 4th of December (20 days to go!) but we’re already out of ideas for our Elf on the Shelf! Between gift shopping, planning food, and Santa visits it seems like there’s so much on our plate already. And with 20 days still left till Christmas, it means our little Elf-friends need to get up to plenty of mischief in the meantime. Here are some ideas for those of you who are struggling! Like us!


We love this idea! And think it could be used for our kids other toys too…maybe Spiderman shoots a web and catches Santa’s little helper?

If you haven’t already put up your Christmas tree, then this could be the perfect way to start out the day! Have your Elf decorate their own Christmas tree before you start your own.
