We have been visited by the Elf on the Shelf for over 7 years now.
At Christmas, we have 4 Elf on the Shelf, and an Uncle Si come to visit! We also have a Halloween Elf on the Shelf that comes for a few days around Halloween!
We really are a little crazy, but we love it. Even after our son stopped believing that they went back to Santa every night, he still absolutely believes in the magic of Christmas. When he finally stopped believing completely (he was nearly 11 years old) I asked if he still wanted them to come, and without hesitation, he said yes.
Here you will find all the Elf on the Shelf-related posts on my site! We are constantly updating our posts, so scroll down and see what we currently have.
The Elf on the Shelf activities are broken down into the following sections:
Elf on the Shelf Ideas for Halloween!
Elf on the Shelf Arrival
Elf on the Shelf Antics
Elf on the Shelf Activities for kids
Elf on the Shelf Goodbye

Even More Elf Printables?
Before we get to all of our Elf on the Shelf posts I wanted to share with you an amazing deal.
If you are in a rush and are tired of searching for Elf on the Shelf printables you can purchase all of my printables for a small fee here. There are exclusive printables included not found anywhere else, and 32 pages to print!
See what mischief our Halloween elf on the shelf gets up to. Along with our favorite Halloween Elf accessories. She is only with us for the day of Halloween and then she won't come back until Christmas. This year I am going to treat her to a new haunted house sweater!
Elf on the Shelf Arrival
See how we prepare for the Elf on the Shelf! We start setting the scene in November!
When the Elf actually arrives, normally with a North Pole Breakfast (see below) we always get an Elf on the Shelf arrival letter explaining what she will be doing for Santa. If you are looking for a personalized Elf arrival letter I really like this one from Etsy.
With the arrival of the Elf on the Shelf comes a North Pole breakfast. Normally this is full of sugar and candy, but we have over the years added more savory and healthy options which the kids absolutely love. For even more North Pole breakfast printables I am loving these from Etsy.
Download our free Elf on the Shelf goodbye letter this year to explain to the kids what happens now the Elf has gone back to the North Pole. If you are looking for a personalized goodbye letter I love this one from Etsy.
