5 Creative Elf on the Shelf Ideas. Submit Your Own & Win!

Has your elf been naughty or nice? Last year we had a bit of an epic fail with our own elf and then a member of our forums had such a spectacular disaster it left her with the predicament of having TWO elves this year. 😉  You should really read her story. Deanna has a way with words and describes the even flawlessly (and you will end up in stitches over it!)

So this year our elf came back, guns a’blazin’. He had a new name, Buddy, and was up to no good. He was so naughty, in fact, that I had to keep his antics over at our sister site, Mommy Needs a Break. (nsfk) As I scroll pinterest, I see all these amazing and creative “predicaments” others are finding their elves in. Now I’m left wondering, is our elf so naughty because my kids are? Or do these parents have a direct line to Santa, scouting the fields for the best ones? Hmmmmm…

Here are our 5 favorite Elf on the Shelf moments we’ve seen on pinterest. Have a photo of your own to share? Link it up below! Our panel of judges will hand pick the best one for a $50 Amazon egiftcard!

    Elf on the shelf where I had the elf riding on top of our dog. Then when my daughter went to call the dog in to play the elf showed up too!
