I shared recently my love the The elf on the shelf, when I shared 24 elf on the shelf jokes as well as elf on the shelf blank note cards. I thought I’d round up and share 25 QUICK AND EASY elf on the shelf ideas for what to do with the elf, because I’m often remembering as I lay down to sleep in December, and have to quickly run out and try to think of something fun!

I feel fortunate that I’ve got some awesome teenagers who think it’s fun to “be the elf.” But dang, we can often be forgetful and heading off to bed, and the elf hasn’t moved! I need quick and easy, my friends. I don’t want to have to gather a bunch of supplies, or go sifting through closets, I just want fun and different.
