I don’t know about you, but I love having a calendar in front of me. An Elf on the Shelf calendar filled with ideas was just what I needed last year, so I updated our Elf on the Shelf idea calendar for the year 2018. I have learned to set an alarm on my phone each night so I remember to move the elf and that helps tremendously, but some nights I feel like I am stuck on where to move our beloved December guest. So I created a calendar of ideas that will help all of us and hopefully inspire a little creativity too!

The elf has some great weekends planned now. When he comes with a bag of marshmallows we have a marshmallow fight and it is the highlight of my girls’ years. Seriously, it is November and they are talking about the marshmallow fight we had last December.
You can get the boy Elf on the Shelf, girl Elf on the Shelf, Chist or elf plush dolls from Amazon. Check Target and Hallmark for the Elf on the Shelf sets as well. If your want to take a more religious approach to this tradition look at the Shepard on the Search set.
This Scout Elves at Play set looks like a fun addition to your elf season. I think we are going to have to order one for our house!
Don’t miss these free printable elf notes created by Coupons Are Great. There is a customizable box for you to enter your own custom message. How cool is that?
If your elf has a low key entrance last year’s Elf Returns letter is perfect for the return!
Our elf thought ahead this year and left boxes for the girls to fill with the Elf Returns Letter #2. We will donate those toys to a women’s shelter.
You can download the old, 2013 pdf of this calendar by clicking here. Enjoy!
