The Elves On The Shelf have arrived. They are stationing themselves around the house daily to report the behavior of little boys and girls to Santa before Christmas.

Julie has two Elves On The Shelf that visit her house to report on her daughters, Elfie and Bernie. Bernie was once named Sherbet, but he got too close to a light bulb. He’s now called Bernie because of the little burn mark on his tummy.

Tony’s nieces Addie and Ava have an Elf On The Shelf named Jake that visits. He always brings them a ornament to put on the tree. One year, Addie got Ava’s ornament down for her, and in playing with it, it broke into a billion pieces. Ava went into meltdown mode, which only got worse when she was reminded that Jake would report to Santa about what happened.

The Elves like to get up to some mischief after they’ve reported back to Santa. We found some fun ideas from for the Elves to do before they get back on the shelf.
