Elf on the Shelf ideas Part II

Updated: Dec 3, 2020



Well, that's it folks: It's December which means not only is it officially the festive season, but chances are you might have had a small Elf move into your home, hellbent on creating merry mischief. We already gave you 12 Elf on the Shelf ideas to see you through the first half of the advent with, and, as promised, we've found 12 more fun-packed ideas to ho-ho-hopefully see you through until Christmas! Voila.


1. Toast


Let the elves make a toasty kinda brekkie (pictured top) that will keep the kids fuelled on smiles all day long.


2. Camo Elf

Give your Elf a camo makeover before popping him into the Christmas tree, but do use make up that can be washed off: the kids might not be too chuffed if he has to stay like that for the whole festive season.


3. Choir

Most of us have already got our Chrimbo tunes on a loop to get us in a merry mood, so we love the idea of Elf on the Shelf training up his own fruity choir.


4. Zip line

If you're short on time, then setting up a zip line is an easy peasy idea that requires minimum fuss.


5. Marshmallow snowmen

Now here's an idea sure to melt your heart: marshmallow snowmen! There's snow way the kids won't love this one.


6. Fruit tree

We've already given you a guide on fun festive treats to make with the kids, so why not get your Elf to whip up this healthy-but-cute fruit Christmas tree?


7. Swap out the cutlery draw

Your own small elves will love finding that their Elf on the Shelf has swapped out the boring ol' cutlery for a whole heap of candy instead.


8. Toilet roll fort

We love a toilet roll craft project, so this loo roll fort is right up our street!


9. Oreos

If your Elf is a naughty kinda Elf (aren't they all?), then reinventing Oreos with mint toothpaste will definitely be their thing.


10. Graffiti

First off make sure you use a felt tip / marker that WASHES OFF! Then go mad jazzing up your family photos.


11. Christmas picture book

Fact: Elf fatigue WILL set in, so do yours-elf a favour and don't beat yours-elf up about doing something simple with your Elf. Set them up reading a Christmas story: It's fun, it's super easy and everyone loves a festive read. Use an old book or buy a new one: either works.


12. Xmas eve box

Xmas eve! Which means it's time for the Elf to sod off back to the North Pole. For your Elf's final hurrah, why not treat the kiddos to a Xmas eve box? The official Elf on the Shelf ones are out of stock at the mo, but even better, why don't you find a small business that whips up Xmas eve boxes? There are tons on Etsy we love, or otherwise, create your own!


Parents: you made it. Time for a celebratory Christmas tipple for sure.
