As we get closer to Santa’s arrival, children (and myself) get quite excited. The anticipation of waiting to wake up Christmas morning to a plate of half eaten cookies, an empty glass of milk, and a tree lined with more presents than you can count is enough to leave kids speechless.
But if you fear that your child has been a little naughty this year, then look no further than The Elf on the Shelf.
This magical elf helps Santa manage the naughty and nice lists of billions of children by reporting back to him at the North Pole every night. It’s up to you, the adult, to place this mystical scout in a different spot every night to keep up the appearance of reality. I mean, of course Santa exists. That’s not what this is about.
Either way, here is a list of some crafty locations and situations to place your Elf on the Shelf in!
