Elf on the Shelf Ideas ~ Week One

Last week, I shared our fun  
that our Elf planned for us to start 
the month of December.  
Here's what he's been up to since December 1st...


 Day 2 ~ Caught in the corner of the living room making Q-tip snowflakes.



 Day 3 ~ Found sitting on the shelf in my son's room.




 Day 4 ~ Sneaking chocolate chips in the pantry.




 Day 5 ~ Left us a message on our dry erase calendar


 Day 6 ~ He switched our shower curtain to our Winter Snowflake one,
then took a shower himself.


 Day 7 ~ Taking a little break for an Elf mani/pedi 
in the girls' room.


Day 8 ~ He left us a cute 
Candycane Garden Planting Kit.







Day 9 ~ Unfortunately, he could only leave us a note and no special candy canes grew :(

Day 10 ~ Luckily the next day was better 
and some M&M-filled candy canes 
grew in the Candycane Garden.



The fun continued the following week ~ check it out HERE!


Have your elves been having fun?
Make sure to visit our Elf on the Shelf Idea party for some North Pole inspiration.

  1. So cute, Laura!! Our elf only seems to remember that he's supposed to move when mom or dad wake up in the morning. Yours is much more fun!
