Elf on the Shelf Ideas Week | Day 7


Today is the final day of Elf on the Shelf Ideas Week! (Stay strong friends, stay. strong.)

We've seen a lot of adorable elves that, for the most part, have been behaving themselves. I think we need to take a look at a few elves who are a bit less well mannered (nothing too racy... this IS a PG blog after all!).

Hi Sugarplum | Elf on a Shelf

There are no DIY details, but it's a good jumping point!


Saying Goodbye

Saying goodbye is never easy. Some break ties with a lovely long letter or a big sparkly party, others prefer the bandaid method, leaving only a quick note if anything at all. Here are some ideas to help make the departure less painful.

All packed up & ready to move on out!

Other ideas:
Farewell breakfast (like the arrival one from Day 1)
Leave a holiday book
Scavenger Hunt (find hidden notes & treats)
Deliver Christmas jammies
or just a simple note spelled out on the counter

Hope you found Elf on the Shelf Ideas Week helpful! Have a fun season with your elves & family!
