50 Creative Elf on the Shelf Ideas


Coming up with new Elf on the Shelf ideas can be tough, especially if you have been at it for a few years. Depending on how old the kids are also can determine how “naughty” the Elf on the Shelf is as well and what jokes that the kids actually understand.

Whether you have children or not, we all can appreciate the creativity of some parents. Check out these ideas collected from Pinterest to help you figure out how to next pose Santa’s Little Helper.

If you don’t make it through all 50, you have to at least make it to #27, my personal favorite.

NOTE: Some of these Elf on the Shelf options may be considered “inappropriate” depending on the age of your children. Only you can know what is appropriate for them. If you see one that is too risqué, please laugh, and move on to the next elf option.

1. Campfire Elf.


The best part about this one is that it’s easy.


2. Peppermint Poop Elf


Also helpful if your elf’s name is Peppermint
