When it comes to Elf on the Shelf season, I'm all about planning the whole schedule ahead of time.

With that tiny bit of time invested in making a list of ideas before the season starts, you can whip together magical elf scenes all around your home using everyday objects that take very little time or effort.

To inspire you with easy ideas for arranging your elf in everyday spaces, here are 3 more fun elf poses!

1. Cranberry Bliss Snack Time

Last year, I spent a day baking copycat Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars. The kids wanted Jolly to have one so very badly.

So I utilized their interest, wrote the note to them thanking them for their Christmas spirit of generosity, and got out kind of easy just setting him next to a bar.

If I had been stuck to my plan, they wouldn't have had this joy at sharing their dessert with their elf.

2. Chilling with the Remote

Jolly missed Rudolph, so he put in the Rudolph movie and sat back to watch.

3. Donuts in the Dollhouse

Jolly brought a box of donuts for the kids, and had elf donuts with the Calico Critters in their Townhome.

I put frosting on the Cheerios and dipped them in sprinkles, it was super easy.

I used an Exacto knife to cut out the box template.
