50 Fun Elf On The Shelf Ideas For Your Elf

Some may find it unsettling to have a doll watch your every move, but an Elf on the Shelf is SO much fun.

You know that Christmas Day level of excitement? You get to see this every morning as your child tries to find their elf.

Our son named his elf Reese, and he arrives the day after Thanksgiving. We (and the collective retail world) feel this particular date marks the official start of the Christmas season.

I've noticed quite a few families enjoy the use of their elf as a behavior modification tool, or a physical reminder of Santa's watchful eye.

Our scout elf is definitely watching, but we don't ever use the phrase “Reese/Santa's watching.” We prefer to use the same techniques year-round to keep our child on the straight and narrow (timeout, privileges taken away, and so on).

Our elf is purely there for fun, and a great way to enjoy the days leading up to Christmas.
