25 Ideas for Christmas Fun with your Elf-on-the-Shelf!

Are you looking for some new ideas for some Christmas fun with your Elf-on-the-Shelf?  We love our little elf (his name is Franklin) and look forward to doing some more antics with him this year.  We found some great ideas from our big round-up and “elf research”.  You can see how much fun our elf has had below and our most popular elves too (Superman and Happy Birthday Jesus).  Jump on in for over 20 of our best ideas:

If you’d like to learn more about our family’s history with an elf, click here.  Most importantly,  in our house, Franklin is just for fun.  Just like Santa, we tell our kids that our elf is “just a fun game we play at Christmas.”  Our focus at Christmas is on celebrating the birth of Jesus.
