Last year I made the mistake of introducing Elf on the Shelf to my kids. Don’t get me wrong, it’s cute and fun and they LOVE IT, but I can’t tell you how many times either myself or my husband have shot up in bed at 5AM in a panic about whether or not the damn Elf was moved. While I truly do aspire to be design-minded in many things I do around my house, most of the time moving the elf consists of the very, very basics. A peek-a-boo from the house plant here, a “jumping” out of the cereal box there…you get the idea.
At about this time of the month, the ideas get particularly uninspired. So with that in mind I thought I would round up some ideas that are fun, easy, and photo-worthy for all of us tired mamas, myself included. Browse below, and check out Etsy for easy printables too that make your Elfing look like you tried really hard, with minimal actual effort!
