Not to send you into panic mode, parents, but do you know what next week is?

Yes – it's Scout Elf Return Week – which, if you are in posession of an Elf on Shelf, means that this is when your kids' elf returns back from the North Pole to stay with his human family for the holiday season again.

Are you ready for it?

Anyway, to get us all started on a great flf season, we have rounded up 10 easy (yet bound to impress the kids) ideas for just HOW your elf can make his entrance this time around:

YUM!

The elf is back – and he is ready for some winter fun!

He's back – and already in a bit of trouble...

Let the hide-and-seek begin!

8. He's in the wreath of course!

Elves love holiday cheer, so where better for him to land?

9. He's back to work!
