This week I have shared some easy and affordable ideas. If you’re looking for Elf on the Shelf ideas, check out my seven ideas and cross one week off your December calendar! They can all be easily adapted to fit different ages and are general enough to work if your kids cover a wider age range.
Elf on the Shelf doesn’t have to be overly complicated or cost a lot to make memories with your family!
