When our elf joined the family, my daughter spent lots of time picking the perfect name. Would it be Elfis the North Pole rockstar, or perhaps something inspired by a Christmas movie (Buddy, Cindy Lou, Arthur) or a truly festive choice like Merry, Carol, Snowflake, or Tinsel?

Perhaps your Elf is formal enough to go by his or her full name – Princess Aurora Jingle-Bells? Snickerdoodle Elf-Pants? Holly McSprinkles? Sugarplum Twinkle-Toes?

Whatever you decide, your elf is bound to get up to some elf antics and mischief! We have a handy elf calendar for you to download and plan a month’s worth of activities, or perhaps you would rather give our Elf on the Shelf cheat sheet a try with 24 easy ideas.
