It's that time of year again. You know when you've had a long, cold, chaotic day and as soon as you get comfortable under the covers, you realize you didn't move your elf. It's happened to me more than a few times, even though I love creating little scenes with the elf. Luckily, my husband wakes up super early and notices if the elf is still in the same place. But, for the most part I keep a little arsenal of simple and quick, but fun ideas in my brain to do before bedtime. Here are some ideas I have used that I'm happy to share. If you haven't seen my ideas from previous years, please check out My Favorite Elf on the Shelf Hiding Places from Last Year and More Elf on the Shelf Ideas.
