I think the Elf on the Shelf is a fun and fantastic idea. It can really get kids excited about Christmas and make December super fun. In our home we are taking part in a campaign called #LightTheWorld. Each day in the lead to Christmas we will be doing a special act of kindness, giving service or offering charity to those around us and I think that too can bring the spirit of Christmas into the home and add to the fun and joy of the season.

Christmas to me is a special time and one where we can have fun and teach our children at the same time to show love, compassion and care towards others.

It is a great season for teaching goodwill and good morals and setting an example to our kids of gratitude, thanksgiving and love.

We hope you have a Merry Christmas this year and that the Elf on the Shelf along with other Christmas traditions brings joy and happiness to your family.

  1. These are such great ideas. And they aren’t difficult, which is a plus. Some people have these elaborate set ups and I’m all, “Who has time for that?!”

  2. I have never done elf on the shelf for our girls. I always thought I wouldn’t have enough ideas but you have some great ones here!

  3. My daughter hasn’t mentioned an elf yet (thank goodness), but when we get one I will definitely look back at this for some ideas! I am definitely not the most creative mom on the block!

  4. I’m personally not a fan of elf of the shelf, and I’m really glad my kids have no interest in it. This is a great post for those looking for simple and quick ideas!

  5. Super fun ideas for Elf of the shelf. I’ve been wanting to buy elf on the shelf for the holidays but I never got the chance to. After seeing this I’ll have to head to the stores this weekend to get it.

  6. I think these are cool ideas! I really want to know more about Elf on the shelf because we do not have that tradition here. But it looks fun!

  7. These are wonderful ideas. I love that you are incorporating discipline and great moral values for this kids during this time of the year. The elf would probably go well with the Santa that we had at home.
