With less than 2 week left until Christmas, many elves have already arrived in homes across the country. That means plenty of parents looking for new elf on the shelf ideas. We usually keep it simple with Honey Pickle just moving from one room to another. The boys wake up and immediately start looking for him every morning. It’s fun to see their excitement over such a simple, silly thing.
Occasionally, Honey Pickle has an extra fun night and does something special but the boys don’t expect crazy shenanigans each night. One of the special elf ideas we use is dressing him up in a costume. It’s pretty easy to get creative using simple craft supplies, doll clothes/accessories and even a few printable costume ideas. I’ve rounded up a few different ways to dress up your elf on the shelf.
