We were so pleased to give away an Elf on the Shelf to a lucky Holly at Nap Time reader earlier this holiday season. I really wish that I had 400+ elves to give away to all those who entered, but if you don't already have an elf, I can assure you that the $30 is a great investment.

My daughter is only two years old, and this is our first year with our Elf, Sam, so his hiding spots and antics are pretty obvious and don't really tell much of a story. My friends with older kids, however, are getting pretty creative, and moms all over are sharing their ideas on Pinterest, which begs the question: Is Elf on the Shelf more fun for children or parents?
I'll leave that up for you to decide. Some of these ideas have given me such a chuckle that I have no choice but to share.
|Elf cutting a mattress tag! Oh no!!!|
|Sneaking items from Mom's purse.|
|Going on a candy binge!|
|Loading up on syrup - one of the elves four main food groups.|
|Candlelit date with Barbie... and I'm pretty sure there is alcohol involved!?|
|Building a snowman in the freezer!|
|Being held hostage by Lego men!|
|Elf replaces all family photos with pictures of himself!|
|Have your Elf leave the kids a note asking them to plant his magic seeds (Tic Tacs) into a bowl of sugar for a sweet surprise. When they wake up the next morning the seeds will have grown into cookies! ;)|
|Elf gets locked outside!!|
