95 NEW & EASY ELF ON THE SHELF IDEAS YOUR KIDS WILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE
Elf on the Shelf is a fun Christmas tradition we do every year. My kids race to see who can get up first and find what naughty tricks our Elf on the Shelf, Peppermint, has been up to each morning.
But, by the fifth or sixth day, finding new, unique and less-complicated ideas for parents wanting to delight their kids – gets hard.
A few years ago, our Elf had “forgotten” to move for a couple days in a row, and that’s when I began looking for a handful of fun, yet easy ideas for our Elf on the Shelf to always have on hand.
Since we’ve gone through our tried and true list of 30 Easy & Quick Elf on the Shelf Ideas I knew this year, I needed to create a new list of quick and easy Elf ideas that are not only creative, but simple and easy to set-up and my kids will absolutely love and talk about at school with their friends.
Psst… if you haven’t already snagged your set of positive, “caught you being good,” Elf on the Shelf Notes to pair with your Elf, be sure to grab them too!
95 NEW ELF ON THE SHELF IDEAS THAT ARE EASY & QUICK (AND WON’T TAKE YOU ALL NIGHT TO SET UP)
Here are new ideas that won’t take all night to set up, and you can even whip together last-minute in the morning if you forgot to set up your Elf on the Shelf!
I highly recommend starting the Elf on the Shelf holiday tradition with your family–we all had so much fun with ours. There are so many fun Elf on a Shelf accessories, outfits, and more that you can include–it truly has become a phenomena and for good reason.
