Fresh Ideas for Elf on the Shelf Please?

Ask a Question

It's a big thing in our family and we enjoy finding new scenarios to set up. I've done the leg grating set, (it's OK it was just a carrot!) climbing up the kitchen unit on tins, the zip wire mission impossible thing, tied up and blindfolded, squatting over a potty with the help of chocolate button props, snow angels with hundreds and thousands, holding his friend hostage/duck-taped to the fridge door, face full of shaving foam with a cordless razor....it goes on!

Can you tell I get excited at this time of the year?

I need fresh ideas and it's really important not to duplicate. Any ideas would be really appreciated. There are some hilarious adult themed scenes but I am desperate for some child friendly ones.

I can't use this one but it made me smile......

I was thinking of doing a isolation box. He has to live in it for 2 weeks a clear box snow bed etc, but he causes trouble from inside where he gets barbie to do stuff writes help on the box.

Ann1984 I've already put a clear cube aside since your earlier comment. As lornaae suggested have a look on Pinterest - some I'd never seen before so really worth having the ideas in hand. The only thing I am prepping is a sleigh and harness so that one elf can be pulling the other. Thanks again.

There's a lot of great ideas on Pinterest, I'd recommend having a look there. You could make a board for all the ideas you want to do πŸ™‚

Wrap a door (or all the kitchen cabinet doors if you have time!) and say the elf was practicing his wrapping skills.

Thanks to lornaae I've collected an absolute treasury of ideas from Pinterest. I've already started making props to go with the scenes. This is one of the easy ones that takes little work but very effective.

lornaae I can't lie, I'm usually really good at hunting for things like this but the Pinterest idea completely passed me by. πŸ˜„ Thanks again.

This will be the second one - sorry for the poor quality pics but I think you get the idea. Another elf will be added as the perp. The plan is to make him nicer as the days go on.....
