The Jokester Elf
This Elf on the Shelf idea loves to play practical jokes on the family. Nothing in the house is safe—not even the Christmas stockings. In this picture, the elf has replaced the Christmas stockings with, you guessed it, a pair of undies!
If your little one has not made it to undies yet, replace the stocking with a diaper or pull-up. Parents you are not safe from the jokester elf—go on and be a good sport and replace your stocking with your undies too. The kids will love it!
The Sweet Tooth Elf
With this kind of Elf on the Shelf around, you better hide that jar of Christmas candy. He has a very bad sweet tooth and loves anything with sugar. He has been known to crawl into the candy jar and get stuck on occasion.
As you can see from this picture, my boys caught our elf in the candy jar the other day. My youngest son's reaction was priceless as he asked me if the elf was in trouble for getting candy without asking first.
The Potty Training Elf
Can you handle a little bathroom humor for your Elf on the Shelf? Place your elf somewhere above or behind the toilet. Drape toilet paper everywhere to create the picture that your elf didn't have the decency to flush the toilet.
I have heard of people adding green food coloring to the water in the toilet to make it seem like he went number 1. I have also heard of the idea of putting some type of chocolate in the toilet for—yes, you guessed it—number two. It's totally up to you how far you want to go with this idea!
The Naughty Elf
Watch out for this naughty Elf on the Shelf! He takes the practical joke one step farther and draws on your picture frames.
With a washable or Expo marker, draw a funny face on a family photo or a photo of your child. Place the elf above the picture frame with the marker in his hands. Your children will be shocked when they see this idea!
The Troublemaker Elf
After all these practical jokes and mayhem this Elf on the Shelf has caused this family, it is no wonder that the police caught up to him.
Did he really think he could get away with it all and not get punished? I don't think so. Our police department in my son's room handcuffed him and took him to the big house. My oldest son who is obsessed with policemen will love this idea!
