Hi everyone! This is Kim from seven thirty three and I’m stopping by with a round up of Elf on the Shelf Ideas for you to try out this year!
As a house that has an Elf on the Shelf, I am already planning things for our elf, Christina Marie, to do. I try to make them super easy and fun, and certainly nothing that requires mom (that’s me!) to pick up a huge mess! Christina Marie typically shows up the day after Thanksgiving and stays through until Christmas Eve… which means she has 27 days of activities. Although In years past there have been a few lazy days where she literally has just sat on a shelf, and that’s OK too.
Having done this for a few years now, I feel like I’ve done it all! So I’ve turned to scouring the internet (or posting to Facebook asking friends for ideas that I can create, so seriously, if you have an idea that would make a fun Elf on the Shelf Printable, lay it on me in the comments!) for fun and new things for our Elf on the Shelf to do!
I present to you, 27 Fun and Easy Elf on the Shelf Ideas:
