Can you believe it's nearly December? This year has flown by!
Before we know it, it'll be time for the good ol' 'Elf on the Shelf' season. A fun game for families where you move the elf each day to surprise the kiddies! (Or adults!).
The further we get into December, the harder it becomes to think of new and creative ways to reposition the Elf. Hopefully today's post will inspire you with 30 easy ideas for where to place your Elf!
What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf started in America, yet has now become increasingly popular here in the UK. It's a tradition that began with a book which featured a small naughty Elf character, then each morning, parents would position the Elf around the house in new and funny places to entertain the kids.
