The Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas tradition that has been around for over a decade. But what exactly does this naughty little elf do? Well, aside from watching and reporting back to Santa, this mischievous elf loves to get into all sorts of trouble! Let’s dive in and explore all of the exciting things that your naughty elf can do this holiday season.

Setting Up Pranks and Surprises
The most common way that elves get themselves into trouble is by setting up pranks and surprises throughout the house. Elves are naturally mischievous, so they love to leave behind little surprises like moving furniture around or putting candy in unexpected places. This is a great way to add some excitement to your holiday season!

Getting Into Silliness
Elves also love to get into silly situations. Your elf might be found wearing silly costumes or funny hats, or maybe even stuck in a tree outside. You can use your imagination here; just be sure not to put your elf in any situation where it could be harmed (or worse, lost!).

Making Messes

No naughty elf would ever be complete without making a few messes here and there! Elves have been known to leave glittery footprints throughout the house, write messages with their mouths, or even make snow angels out of flour on the kitchen counter! Whatever mischief your elf gets into, it’s sure to bring lots of laughs.
