All The Elf On The Shelf Ideas You'll Need This Christmas 2015

22 October 2015

Well, December is already upon us and thus we could all use some help with some Elf on the Shelf ideas, right? I don't seem to know a single parent who isn't getting into the Elf on the Shelf in 2015 - but whether you're completely new to the whole Elf 'thing' or are a dab hand at dreaming up fun antics for your Elf on the Shelf, there's no denying that it can prove tricky to keep coming up with ideas for everyone's favourite imp.

I don't actually own an Elf on the Shelf - I know, I'm the last one to this particular party - but I just know I'd start out with heaps of brilliant Elf on the Shelf ideas, only to run out of steam after about a week.

But never fear - we've taken it upon ourselves to scour the internet for not one, not two, but T-W-E-N-T-Y F-O-U-R genius Elf on the Shelf ideas for you, so that you need never run out of inspiration for things your Elf can get up to while your little people are dreaming of Santa.

Oh, and you can click here to order your own Elf on the Shelf from Amazon*

So here we go. All the Elf on the Shelf ideas you'll need for Christmas 2015...

1. Attack of the Lego People.

I've long suspected those little Lego dudes get up to no good after lights out.

2. Minions

Elf + Minions = surely a recipe for disaster. You knew they started life as bananas, right?

3. M&Ms

This Elf knows how to party. I'd do that too if I could find a bag big enough.

4. Toilet Humour

The Elf on the Shelf is nothing if not naughty. Possibly not one to do if there's just the one toilet in your house, though.

5. Sledging, anyone?

Who needs snow?

6. Gone Fishing

There's something a bit fishy about this Elf.

7. The Voice

Audition time. The Elf has to while away the wee small hours somehow.

8. Poorly Elf

There's nothing like a bit of emotional blackmail at the hands of a cute Elf to persuade the kids to behave...

9. Snow Angel

This is only one to try if you can handle the mess, and don't think your kids will try to demolish it for breakkie.
