Creative Elf on the Shelf Ideas

From Thanksgiving until Christmas, the Elf on the Shelf watches your boys and girls during the day and then flies to the North Pole at night to report on who has been bad or good. Each morning, he reappears in a different place in the house -- which he, err, you set up. To make this month-long daily routine more fun, try these awesome Elf on the Shelf ideas from our fave bloggers.
