With the holiday season comes a lot of activities and stresses and pressures for parents. One of those things is elf on the shelf.
I know there are a ton of mixed feelings about this mischievous little elf. Personally, I find it really fun, but I don’t take it too seriously.
Some people put a lot of pressure on, and that… puts a lot of pressure on!
One easy way to keep the experience fun and not too overwhelming is to plan in advance to incorporate a few creative accessories.
There are a ton of sites and services that will try to sell you an elf on the shelf kit with prepackaged daily ideas nowadays.
Personally, I prefer to try to use either household items that we already have sitting around, or a few really cute things that we can save and reuse year after year.
If you are looking to purchase a few super cute elf on the shelf accessories for the season, today I have a ton to inspire you.
When you are looking for Elf on the Shelf accessory ideas, look for things like:
- dollhouse furniture and accessories
- anything barbie sized
- mini or party favor sized items
In general, I suggest you keep it simple. But a few of these fun accessories can be really cute!
