Elf on the Shelf Ideas

Is it not crazy that Christmas is almost here?

Whether you have an Advent calendar up or an Elf hidden on a shelf, chances are that your kids have found some way to start the grand 25 day countdown until Christmas.

So even though we chose not to do Elf on the Shelf in our house this year, we had so much fun with ours last year that I thought I would share a month in review here.

Scroll through the gallery below for the full month of the elf-inspired scenes we set up... all in and around food, of course!

Each image also has a clickable link to the image and caption (as shared on Instagram last year) if you are interested.


Whatever fills up your December days, I hope you may find joy in the simple yet sweet memories built with those you love the most!
