I have gathered up some of my favorite Elf on the Shelf ideas and printables to share with you. I even included one that I LOVE from my friend Lindsay over at Artsy Fartsy Mama. Our elf’s name is Loot and gosh, he is a crazy one. Now that the kids are older, we never know who will move him or when he might end up from day to day. The magic of Christmas is not determined by age. That is our biggest lesson from our elf. Here are six elf on the shelf ideas and printables.
When it comes to elf on the shelf ideas and printables, this one is a total winner! Print this FREE Elf on the Shelf Paper Doll using watercolor paper (if you want to use watercolor paints)!
Paint the elf and the accessories. I am in love with the watercolor paint pods from ooly. They are not too expensive and work fabulously. You can use my affiliate link and grab them on Amazon! Cut out the pieces and assemble using tiny clothespins. Of course tape or glue would work too!
Share your elf reading a book. The book makes a great kickoff gift for the season!
Get a pair of holiday socks for the elf to use as a sleeping bag. The bonus is a new pair of socks for someone in the family!
How about a fun little word search puzzle. You can download and leave it with your elf for your kids to do on a snowy morning or evening of activity.
Here is one of my favorite ideas from One Artsy Mama because….JOKES!!!
The elf is adorable playing with a tiny pack of clay. The store Beyond the Blackboard in Colorado has SOOOOO many great things to go with your elves.
I would LOVE to know some of your elf ideas. Share them and spread some holiday magic.
Cheers and Love,
PS: Here are a couple of other FREE Christmas Printables.
