Elf on the Shelf

Taking part in Elf on the Shelf this year? When you’re a busy parent, we know how difficult it can be to come up with a new idea every single day. But luckily, help is at hand!

Read on for a selection of fun new Elf on the Shelf ideas to try in 2018 – including a clever way to get out of moving your elf for a couple of days!

Build a den

It’s so much fun getting up in the morning to see what your elf has been doing during the night – and we love the idea of building a den!

Our elf used a VELCRO® Brand Blocks Construction Set but you could use whatever you have lying around!

Steal a chocolate from the advent calendar

Those elves can be so sneaky! This one was caught red-handed making a lasso from a pack of VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Reusable Ties so he could steal a chocolate from the advent calendar!

Have a snowball fight

Walk on stilts

Got loads of wrapping paper lying around the house? Take two rolls and turn them into a pair of stilts for your elf! We wrapped each roll with a VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Reusable Tie, which is also a great way to keep your wrapping paper tidy!

Broken leg

Need a break from Elf on the Shelf? Here’s a great reason to not move your elf for a couple of days – pretend he’s broken his leg and must rest (on doctor’s orders!) We used a pack of white VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Reusable Ties to make a pretend plaster cast!
