Elf on the Shelf is an awesome family tradition where you hide a plush elf figurine in various locations throughout your home for the month of December. Each day, the elf is supposed to be somewhere different, and kids love to search the house and discover what the elf is up to. If you’re looking for some creative Elf on the Shelf ideas, we’ve got you covered!
