The ideas behind Elf on the Shelf is he (or she!) arrives, and 'keeps watch' . He helps Santa decide who to put on the naughty and nice lists. But Elves get pretty bored quickly and tend to get into mischief themselves! These are just some of the things our Elf has gotten into...
Please feel free to add your own pictures and ideas to this thread- it will be really helpful for anyone just starting their own Elf on a Shelf Adventure!
Benny took a nap upon arrival...I guess we need to get him his own bed, but this did for the night:
He got into the Christmas Candy:
He got tangled in the blinds:
Aw, Benny brought us mini doughnuts (cheerios decorated with icing and sprinkles)
Late night hanging out watching a Movie- he better not have rented any pay-per-views!
Really Benny?! Really?!!!
Good thing the dog wasn't in her crate when you got stuck Benny!
Benny got the kids cereal ready for the in the morning and helped himself to a bowl as well
Going for 'a spin'
He dry erased some "faces" onto the kids Christmas picture
Late night poker game with the boys (But I think someone cheated!)
Good thing his pants don't come down...nobody wants an elf photocopying his tushie!
Benny was missing his family at the North Pole so he "elfed" us with some help from Office max and their Elf yourself page (available soon!)
Date night with Barbie- I think she picked the movie!
Spider Elf...Spider Elf....
I think he wants soup for lunch
How....nice. Benny got the kids toothbrushes ready this AM, and just in-case we weren't sure who did it....he let us know!
Benny, are those Kels's glasses...and my new Us Weekly?!
The Lego police have had enough of the Elf and his antics, they have contained the Giant
(for editing purposes- I had to overlay the tape, but if you use a small strip of duck tape or electric tape it shows up better than the washi I had on hand!)
Even Harry the Gorilla took matters into his own hands
Benny, are those Mom's favorite shoes...and pearls??!!
That is not how you slam dunk!
Mini Marshmallow bowling
BRRRR...did someone turn off the heat?
Mom is NOT going to think this is very funny, Benny
Zip-lining down the stairs
Benny edited this one and left it for the kids on the computer
