So I started seeing Elf On The Shelf posts on social media over the weekend and thought to myself, what would I do if I had an Elf On The Shelf. I obviously don't because I don't have kid's. So I asked my friends what their Elf On A Shelf does and she was telling me a few things.

I think it is so funny what some people's Elf's do. Some people get very creative and go over the top. I love the one's that put their Elf in quarantine, I even saw one where the Elf had wrapped the toilet in wrapping paper, that's a little much. I was looking at a ton of pics on Facebook and then I came across an Elf On The Shelf cheat sheet for some of you who are like me and might need a little help.

According Simple Most here are a few ideas:

 Have A Potato Sack Race With Friends

 Help With Christmas Decorations

 Roast Some ‘Mallows

Play With Woody (Who Also Comes To Life When Children Aren’t Around)

 Have A Snowball Fight

 Zipline Across A Room

 Ride Stuffed Toys

Have A Disco Party With Barbie & Friends

You know we never had things like Elf On A Shelf. The only thing we knew to was to be good kid's and leave milk and cookies for Santa. We could write Santa a letter but we never got phone calls or text messages from Santa.

Hat's off to you parents who move that thing around everyday and come up with cute things for him to do.

What are some clever ideas you have done with your Elf.
