40 easy elf on the shelf ideas for busy parents. Have a magical holiday season with these creative and clever displays for your family's favorite elf.
My friend Carey has the most awesome approach to festive fun with their family Elf on the Shelf.
Each year she shares with us a few of her favorite tips. Her ideas are some of the most creative and inspirational Elf activities I've ever seen, I'm thrilled that she agreed to share her best tips and tricks with us.
I know there are elf naysayers out there, but I think you'll find that Carey's approach is so wonderful because:
- She's Purely Positive: Her elf is not a reward or punishment for behavior in any way.
- Super Easy: Her tips are really easy even though her photos may make them look jaw dropping.
- Complete Instructions: She totally shares her how-to's. If you see a photo and have questions, please leave her a comment and she'll be happy to give more specifics!
With a little bit of planning, anyone could truly handle Carey's practices. I hope you enjoy the ideas as much as I do!
