My Favorite Elf on the Shelf Hiding Places from Last Year

It's almost that time of year again! Time for your little elf to come out of hiding and get ready to report to Santa nightly. I cherish the chance to get creative with our little guy, Skippy, but sometimes I need a bit of inspiration. I love seeing what others have done, and then making those ideas my own. I hope these ideas get your creative juices flowing, so you can surprise your kids using things you have at home. If you are looking for some accessories, I have linked some below as well.

We all know syrup is one of the elves' favorite food groups. Candy corn is too! Save some of that Halloween candy.

If you're lost you can look and you will find me. Time after . . . You can look and you will find me, time after time.

Flour Angel. **Disclaimer. It wasn't easy getting the flour off. If anyone has any tips on that, let me know in the comments.





Of course, if the elf had a donut, he had to bring some for the family too!



My kids really get a kick out of it when the elf plays with their toys.








A few other things Skippy did to bring joy to our home was bring snow and hid candy canes around the house! He also hid in a jar one day so the kids could take him to the Hot Wheels/Monster Truck Drive Thru. Let me know if you have a unique Elf on the Shelf idea!













Enjoy your time hiding your scout elf!

Dragon Mama.


THANK YOU FOR SHARING !
