Elf on the Shelf Ideas

We have a new visitor in our house.
An Elf on the Shelf - Aussie edition.
A cheeky elf that is about to cause a lot of trouble.

I am a little excited, maybe even more than my kids!
I love that he is a blonde elf for a family of blonde cherubs.

He appeared out of nowhere with a note introducing himself to our family.

So far in our house our naughty elf has:

Kidnapped all of the Pet Shop toys

Let us some snow from the North Pole

Went skiing on Weetbix on our kitchen table

Some of you may even have your own Elf On The Shelf and may be more experienced at what some great ideas are to do with him. I am just starting out and thought I would put together a collection of good sites that have some fun ideas for causing mischief this Christmas. Here are some below:

Below are some more images of what you can do:
Tips out toys and make a mess.
Paint the kids noses red while they are sleeping and leave a note.
Change the colour of the milk to green.
Hide in the freezer and steal the icecream.
Tips out the cereal.
Sit up in bed with the television remote.
Deface a family picture.
Steal the toilet paper.

I found all of these images on Pinterest.
I am looking forward to having fun with our elf.
Now we just need to give him a name.
