13 Elf on the Shelf ideas that your child is sure to absolutely love

It's the first full week of December.

Which, to many of us these days, basically means there are 18 some-odd Elf on the Shelf antics to come up with before he goes back to the North Pole for 11 blissful months  we can pack him away somewhere the kids won't find him for the next 11 months.

The festive craze can prove to be challenge once December arrives - after all, coming up with a  whole month's worth of ideas is fairly tricky.

So, to make things a little bit easier, we've scoured the internet for a mix of the most creative, imaginative and just downright hilarious Elf on the Shelf ideas on social media.

1. Buddy the Elf would be very proud of these two
