I love reading creative Elf on the Shelf ideas, but I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not usually a parent who goes all out with magical scenes every night and handwritten notes. For one, we don’t really tell our kids that their Christmas depends on their behavior, so Elf on the Shelf doesn’t report it to Santa in our house. Second, I’m kind of a lazy mom.
Not in the “too lazy to take care of my kids” way.
More in the “not one more thing I have to keep up with” way.
If you think you’re a bit like me or if you just need some simple Elf on the Shelf ideas, this Elf on the Shelf schedule is totally the one for you. I’ve even included our North Pole Snow Days where Elf doesn’t move, perfect for the nights when you just forget. Use as needed!
Pin the graphic to reference it again and again, even if that means you’re digging it out of your Christmas Pinterest board next year. I promise, your kids probably won’t remember.
