Elf on the shelf ideas
Obviously after your elf does his or her 10-14 day isolation, you will have to come up with some new ideas of what to do. Last year was the first year my family did this tradition thanks to a gift from my sister, we were forced into it. I actually do not mind doing this, and my girls loved seeing where Sparkle Heart was every morning. But I can also appreciate how hard it is to come up with new ideas, and not repeating ideas as the years go on.
That is why we are going to have multiple lists in the coming weeks for ideas. We will have some for younger kids (easier ideas), older kids (maybe some pranks?) and some for the nights where you have completely forgotten.

Keep following along as we give ideas about Elf on the Shelf, and maybe some Christmas themed drinks to go with doing this tradition!!
