DENVER (KDVR) — Christmas is right around the corner. Some parents across the country are starting to run out of creative ideas for their Elf on the Shelf.

If you’re struggling, we have some ideas to help, thanks to the “Elfing Around- Elf on the Shelf Ideas 2021” Facebook group. The group has over 15,000 people in it and hundreds of posts with ideas.

One parent shared, “This is our first year doing elf on the shelf with our boys. We decided to do a story line that continues throughout the season.”

This parent flexed her creative muscles by wrapping a roll of toilet paper around the Christmas tree and finishing with the elf and a sign saying, “this is how I roll”, to putting an elf in a group of toy dinosaurs with a sign that reads, “making new friends”.

Here are some ideas from Elf on the Shelf:
