Elf on the Shelf Ideas

We've had a little visitor in our house the last few weeks, and he has been causing quite a stir!  Here are some pictures to show what he's been up to:

He first arrived by coming down the chimney.  Trying to be like Santa, I guess.  He left some treats for Scarlett along with a note.

Day 2: Snacks with Elsa.  And Elsa froze the milk!

Day 3: An impostor!  Buzz and Woody were not happy.

Day 4: Making reindeer friends, just like the elf from Rudolph.

Day 5: Making s'mores

Day 6: Elfie read "The Polar Express" and decided to take a train ride of his own.
 Day 7: bath time

Day 8: Picnic in the Hundred Acre Wood.  

Day 9: Elf bowling

Day 10: Elfie drew on the tub with bath crayons that he left for Scarlett.

 Day 11: toilet-papering the Christmas tree, and trying to make a quick getaway

Day 12: Elfie made his own gingerbread house since Scarlett made one that morning as well.

Day 13: Sitting in Scarlett's tree (I think Elfie was tired and out of ideas that day).

Day 14: playing the part of a wiseman

Day 15: Reading a book to his friends from The Peanuts Gang.

Day 16: Elfie loves syrup!  

Day 17: Elfie found our Dollar Tree sticker stash.

I've been loving every minute of having Elfie here.  It's a weird, strange little creative outlet for me that gives Scarlett a blessing each day.  One of my favorite things to do is create experiences which lead to memories, and I think Elf on the Shelf is a great way to do that.  It doesn't hurt that it reinforces good behavior as well!
