Elf On The Shelf Ideas

The Elf on the Shelf tradition is bigger than ever in the UK now, but one things for sure, it's a commitment!

The festive but of fun which started in the US involves an Elf who is sent by Santa to check that children are being good during December.

Parents set the elf up in different scenarios each morning for their children to find...but the golden rule is they can't touch the Elf or it will disappear!

Coming up with a scenario to put your elf in every morning can be tough, so here's some of our favourite simple to do Elf on the Shelf ideas to lend you a creative helping hand.
