Easy and Clever Elf on a Shelf Ideas
When my oldest daughter was three and a half, I decided to start the Elf on a Shelf tradition. I was so excited about it. Being the planner that I am, I decided try out a few ideas while she was on a play date. If your a fan, check out my Etsy shop for some fun ideas too. I would love to hear any ideas that you may have too, so feel free to make a comment below!
Here is what I came up with in the two free hours I had…
So, the first thing I thought of was to raid her toys. I found a little oven so, I placed it on our kitchen counter top with a little pie inside.
Then I found this little potty training toilet for her baby dolls…this one speaks for itself!
What elf doesn’t want to have a tea party???
For this one, I brought out one of her favorite books and set up the elf to read a bedtime story to her fairies.
I ventured into our garage and found this checkers board. So far it’s tied… 😉
Then I went upstairs to the craft room. Our elf OF COURSE is very crafty!
For the last one, our elf sent her a little message on her chalkboard.
Do you have any ideas for me?
