Last Minute Elf On The Shelf Ideas

Last year, I introduced the Elf On The Shelf into our home for the first time. Although Cici and I thoroughly enjoyed his antics, there were many times where I had just jumped into bed, all snuggled up warm and then suddenly I’d remember “Damn it! I forgot to move the darn Elf!” When you’re feeling sleepy, the last thing you want to do is create Oscar-winning scenes for your Elf to appear in, so I’d just plonk him somewhere quick and easy. Chatting to other parents, it seems I wasn’t alone in my forgetfulness, so I thought I’d post some of my ideas here to give others a hand!
