A Month of Elf on the Shelf Ideas

By Devany LeDrew | Labels:

Our elf Dodee (pronounced dough-dee) arrived last year right before D was born.  While I was guaranteed to be up at least once a night with a newborn and an elf I was often completely out of the creativity needed to make Dodee's antics fun.

This year, I have the whole month planned in advance.  I've alternated easy and more involved adventures in the calendar below.  I asked friends and searched Pinterest for elf ideas!

Dodee returns to us after Thanksgiving.  In the meantime, I've added his picture and name to a current contact in my phone who will text and call us about arrival plans to build up the excitement!
