Clever, fun, and easy Elf on the Shelf hiding spots for those times when your Elf on the Shelf just can’t figure out where to hide!
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf who comes to visit you every December? We welcomed our elf, Kringle, four years ago and we’ve found him pretty much everywhere all over the house over the last few Decembers. I always love looking online and seeing pictures of where others have found their elves hiding in the morning and I’m trying to make sure I share some of our elf’s ideas as well more often.
Some elves seem to get themselves into some pretty extravagant mischief, but I always like quick, easy, and clever hiding spots the best. I really like it when Kringle doesn’t leave me with too much of a mess to clean up too!
Here are a few great spots that people have found their elves hiding in their homes. Make sure you show them to your elf once he/she arrives so they don’t run out of great ideas this December! 🙂
