Elf Shenanigans: Top Tips and Fun Examples for Elves Behaving Badly

The holiday season is upon us, and for parents, that means it's time to welcome back mischievous little elves into our homes. Elves Behaving Badly has become a beloved tradition, adding a touch of whimsy and laughter to the festive season. If you're looking to up your Elf on the Shelf game this year, here are some top tips and fun examples for creating magical and memorable moments for your children.

Tip 1: Plan Ahead

To make your elf's escapades truly enchanting, plan ahead for the entire month. Consider a theme or storyline that your elf will follow, and jot down ideas for daily antics. This way, you'll have a roadmap for mischief and can ensure that each day brings a new and exciting surprise.

Tip 2: Get Creative with Props

Utilize household items and craft supplies to create miniature scenes for your elf's antics. Whether it's a marshmallow bubble bath in the sink or a zip line made from dental floss, the possibilities are endless. EuroGiant offers a variety of affordable props and accessories that can enhance your elf's mischievous adventures.

Tip 3: Involve the Whole Family

Get the whole family in on the fun by encouraging kids to come up with their own ideas for the elf's antics. This not only sparks creativity but also makes the experience more interactive and exciting for everyone. Create a brainstorming session where each family member pitches their wild and wacky elf ideas.

Tip 4: Incorporate a Storyline

Weave a captivating storyline for your elf's adventures. Perhaps your elf is on a secret mission from Santa or has a mischievous rival in the house. Develop a narrative that unfolds throughout the month, keeping the kids engaged and eager to see what happens next.

Fun Examples:

  1. Elf Spa Day: Utilize Elf on the Shelf spa accessories from EuroGiant such as a mini bathrobe, tiny slippers, and a miniature towel. Have the elf create a relaxing spa scene, complete with a bubble bath using bath bombs from the Elf on the Shelf collection.

  2. Elf's Midnight Snack: Create a tiny kitchen scene using Elf on the Shelf kitchen accessories from EuroGiant. Place miniature cookies, a tiny milk carton, and even a pint-sized Elf on the Shelf mug. Your mischievous elf can be caught enjoying a midnight snack
  3. Zip-lining Elf: Use dental floss to create a zip line across a room. Hang the elf with a tiny harness and let it zip from one end to the other.

  4. Toothpaste Toothbrushing Fiasco: Leave a mess in the bathroom with toothpaste splatters and toothbrushes scattered around, as if the elf tried to brush its teeth but got carried away.

  5. Elf Mail Delivery: Have the elf deliver tiny letters from the North Pole to each family member, sharing messages of kindness and holiday cheer.

  6. Elf Christmas Carol Karaoke: Use Elf on the Shelf musical instruments from EuroGiant to set up a karaoke night. Position the elf with a tiny microphone and encourage your kids to join in for a night of Christmas carol singing. 
  7. Snow Angel Flour Fun: Sprinkle flour on a clean surface and let the elf make snow angels. Bonus: Leave tiny elf-sized footprints leading to the mess.
