I saw the Elf on the Shelf at Barnes and Noble tonight. This is our 4th year with him. It's getting really hard to come up with new ideas. Here's an album I created with some of the things Rudolph has done at our house. My kids are 11 and 9 and they still get so excited to find him every morning!

Elf on the Shelf is SO much fun! Last year was our first year doing it and we had a blast. Last year we made it so our son couldn't touch the elf and it worked fine but he was so sad he couldn't hug him! This year Santa wrote a note saying he took the magic off Sprinkles (our elf) so that our son could touch him. He was thrilled! Sometimes he leaves him alone...others he carries him all over the place. It actually really helped when he had to go to the dentist to have his front two teeth pulled. (Adult teeth pushing on the baby ones. Poor kid was in pain!)

As for ideas...I echo pinterest. It's amazing and the hub station of awesome ideas. This year Sprinkles has bungee jumped with a slinky, hid in a stocking, hugged the star on the tree, read a story to all his toys, made a sugar angel, brushed his teeth, etc etc. It's a lot of fun so I highly recommend it!

Some things our elf has done:

-made reindeer food (oatmeal & glitter)
-tp'd the kitchen
-hung pj's all over my younger son's room
-ate cookies (pretty sure that was DH-lol)
-climbed the poinsettia garland
-built with blocks
-played with Hot Wheels
-drew mustaches on picture frames (with dry erase markers)
-fell asleep in a stocking reading Twas the Night before Christmas

Our elf is bad.

Our Elf was caught drawling a picture of himself this morning. He's taken a marshmallow bubble bath, read a new book to the Pez dispensers, hung from the ceiling fan.

This morning Sprinkles was holding a razor and had his whole face covered in shaving cream.
He has also turned a whole gallon of milk green.
Hung upside down out of the kitchen cabinet to drink chocolate syrup out of a straw.
He got 'stuck" outside and had to write HELP LET ME IN on the window.
roasted mini marshmellows on a toothpick over a votive candle.
Very time consuming but he made a big race car track out of canned goods on the kitchen floor and then was sitting in a race car. (boys loved it)
Got into the band-aids and put them all over himself and was sitting among the empty wrappers,
Was riding a huge dinasaur.
Covered the tree in underware.
