22 of the Funniest Elf on Shelf Ideas this Year!
Hey hey and welcome. We are well into December now and not many sleeps until it’s Christmas Day! Exciting! So today we’re rounding up some of the funniest elf on the shelf ideas and tricks you can play on the kids. So think naughty rather than nice!
Let’s get started with ideas!
Take a Pee
Have your elf take a pee!
Write rude words on the toilet roll! So easy but super funny.
Or write rude words using fridge magnets.
Elf is caught snogging princess!
Dress up in Disguise
Hide your elf among the other toys and Christmas treats!
Raid the Cupboards

All Tied Up
There are many ways you could tie your elf up! Have some of the other toys tie him up like the image below. Or perhaps get him in a muddle with sticky tape.
This is an easy trick which is super funny! Image thanks to Karina at Mums the Nerd.
Elf decides to raid mum and dad’s stash of booze. Oops!
There are loads of ways you can trap your elf. What about using a glass or jug? And have some fierce LEGO toys guard him!
There are many things elf can draw or write on. It really depends how much time you have on your hand! This easy trick with a pen and the bananas doesn’t take too long at all.
Time for Beer
If your elf gets tired, perhaps pinch a nice cold beer out of the fridge. It’s thirsty work playing all these tricks!
Have Fun with Packaging
I love this idea which was sent to me by a friend. This cheeky elf has got inside a Snowman chocolate! I’ve seen other packaging tricks using Pringle tubes too!
Oops, clumsy elf has had an accident and run another toy over!!
Elf Fell OFF the Shelf!
If you fancy taking a break, perhaps have your elf take a little fall. Genius.
Stuff His Face!
This one is really easy. Simply have your elf tuck into your child’s chocolates.
Decorating the Tree!
Go mad trashing the tree…!
You can have a lot of fun with toilet roll it seems! Picture courtesy of The Gingerbread House.
Get elf dressed up in your child’s pants. It’s bound to cause giggles.
Lazy elf! Perhaps have him watching something silly! Image thanks to Paper Heart Family.
If you have one of those refillable advent calendars, then it’s quite easy to get your elf to steal some treats from this. You can easily refill it later!
Lock Him Up
I love this idea my sister shared. Elf is locked up in elf jail. With the iPads and tablets!
