    wow that’s a lot of work! my kids stay up later than if do. I’d never get through all those! I can picture my 10 year old daughter doing this with her children when she’s a mom someday though. it’s right up her alley!

  2. Lori Walker says

    What a great collection of ideas, this calendar really brings the Elf on the Shelf to life. Some of these ideas made me laugh.

  3. Linda Treadwell says

    What a fun thing to do with your kids! I wish they had something like this when my kids were little 30 years ago. I could see this becoming a tradition with the kids. Looks like a lot of fun.

  4. cortney walls says

    These are GREAT!!!! I totally printed the calendar so that we can use it! I was really having a hard time thinking ideas up myself!

  5. Becky Bartlett says

    Great ideas, I love the snow angel in the flour and driving around in the barbie car or other remote control vehicle. Sleeping outside on the porch that one is funny and cute.

  6. stephanie ubiera says

    I really need to research this elf on the shelf thing,because i dont honestly know lots about it, but that calender of to do’s was the cutest thing ever. Thank you for opening my eyes.

  7. courtney hennagir says

    My sister in law just got an elf for my niece and was wondering about things to do with it! I’ll send this to her. Thanks for the calendar!

  8. says

    I love the idea of locking the Elf out because he stayed out too late and making him sleep on the porch. I laughed out loud at that one. Some of these ideas are really funny. I like that – it adds lots of interest for me, which is the only way I can get involved in shelving the elf! Love it.

  9. Michele I. says

    Totally need to borrow some of these ideas. Matilda our elf just hides and my little girl finds her every morning before school.

  10. Andria Bonbright says

    I definitely need ideas and these are super. I LOVE the marshmallow bath idea & the streamers in the kid’s room idea. Great
    and thanks~

  11. Melody Hudson says

    Definitely will use a lot of these ideas and create a calandar of my own if I win this cute elf. I think I’m going to just have to print this out for future reference, thanks!

  12. Cintia Scanlan says

    This is my first year hearing about elf on the shelf and I am loving all your creative ideas. Thanks for being willing to share it with us.

  13. Melody Domingues says

    This is a great idea that I wish I could use now. Unfortunately I think my niece may be a little too young to enjoy it.

  14. Synthia Hernandez says

    I dont have an Elf on the shelf but thank you for the link. Because this Elf on shelf calendar woud be a fun idea for my daughter and I.

  15. says

    I REALLY like the idea of the elf drawing on photos because it has a valuable lesson in it for my little girl who just got in trouble for writing on the door at her grandmas

  16. Jennifer Cotten says

    I am going to print this out and put it with the elf on the shelf we are giving our grand daughter for Christmas.

  17. Jane Ritz says

    I’m going to print this off for my daughter. I couldn’t think of that many ideas for “Walter” if I had to. Thanks for sharing.

  18. jessica hughes says

    great ideas thanks!! We have 2 elves:Peppermint McJingles and Cookie Toe-Bells, they are not elves on the shelf they are just plushies but the kids dont know and love them!!!

  19. Crystal Draper says

    Thank you for all the great ideas I have been having a hard time trying to figure out where to put him or what to have him do.

  20. Julie Wood says

    I like the Fun and Creative Ideas for using Elf on the Shelf. I will have to try these starting today; Thanks for the ideas!

  21. Tammy S says

    What fun ideas! Thanks for sharing such creative ideas. I always get stumped after about 2 weeks. I love the one about coloring the milk green. I can’t wait to try that. Thanks!

  22. Margaret MacKenzie says

    I’ve never heard of the Elf on the Shelf until this year. My mum always told us that there was an elf that sat on our shoulder all year so that he/she could report to Santa about whether we were naughty or nice. This is a cute idea.

  23. Lori A. says

    We never tried Elf on a Shelf. My kids are a bit older and might not appreciate it as much. LOL I do have to admit, the idea of an elf hiding around the house and doing things is a slight bit creepy. But I bet little kids would enjoy it!

  24. says

    Lol, I searched high and low for an Elf on the Shelf a couple of years ago, and my daughter, then 6, was so traumatized that the elf had eaten cookies overnight, that to this day she can’t even look at an Elf on the Shelf. It has to stay hidden away, lol.

  25. Bailey Dexter says

    OMG, great ideas, this is my first year of doing the Elf, so what a helpful chart! Thanks will be doing so many of them as well as adding a few!

  26. Matt Stringham says

    This is awesome! It is our first year with little elfie and these ideas are great. My wife and I are already out of them and it is only the 8th.
