Last Minute Elf on the Shelf Ideas

In a dream world our Elf on the Shelf is a proactive planner. She has a thick book of ideas full of magical wonder. In reality there is a good chance our Elf on the Shelf has had to pull last minute ideas for any number of reasons. Whether she has pulled last minute ideas or not she did a nice job of showing off her creativity. She danced her way into our hearts, transformed into a Christmas angel and turned our basement stairs into a slide. And that’s just a few of her whimsical appearances. Keep reading for more of our Elf’s shenanigans, many of which are ideal for last minute inspiration.
