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.
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.
Elf + Minions = surely a recipe for disaster. You knew they started life as bananas, right?
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
10. Ninja Elf
My lads would LOVE this.
11. Yoga Elf.
Elf and the girls get their downward dog on.
12. Elf turns prankster.
Just make sure you don't use a permanent marker!
13. Who ate all the cookies?
The note reads: 'Need more cookies, please!'
14. Looks like Date Night...
for Elf and Barbie!
15. Snowball Fight!
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.
16. Elf hits the gym
That's my kind of weight-lifting.
17. Can you imagine the kids' faces...
when they find the Elf hiding in the fridge?
18. Elf orders out...
for a pizza...!
19. Woah, there.
Let's hope the Force is with the Elf on the Shelf. Or in the slow cooker.
20. Elf brings home a Christmas Tree
Look at the tiny footprints!!
21. The Elf puts the Grinch in a time out.
22. The Elf shows up with breakfast...
fresh from the North Pole!
23. Elsa, Anna and the Elf get together...
for a movie party!
24. Don't the let the Elf on the Shelf
anywhere near the Advent calendars!
