The Best Hiding Spots For Your Elf On The Shelf

The elf on the shelf has become our family tradition as a hide-and-seek-buddy every Christmas. My kids’ elf, Nodie, keeps everything light and festive in our home during the holiday season. He likes to hide in different places every day. The fun part of this activity? I get to choose the place in our home our little buddy gets to hide. Now, my kids need to find him every day. I really love seeing my kids’ eyes light up in the morning when they find Nodie. But I must admit, I’m running out of ideas this year. So, I’ve made a little research and found some wonderful and funny ideas to keep my elf on the shelf exciting for the holiday season. Jump on in for my favorite hiding place ideas!

Dating with Barbie

Mistletoe and Barbie are ready for some fun time together. Isn’t this fun drinking from the syrup bottle? It looks like they’re just enjoying every moment together!

In A Baby Doll Stroller

This little fella seems to take over the baby doll stroller. And maybe if he stays near the doll furniture for long enough my daughter will probably take him for a ride.

Playing Games

This Elf also loves to play games with his friends! You might as well want to introduce him to the other dolls or figurines in the house. He would be glad to play all night with them.

Elf on the Shelf Stilts

These two elves are walking high on wrapping paper stilts.


This little guy here got stuck under a glass. Will he be able to go back to the North Pole and give his report to Santa? Kids would really wonder what naughtiness he’s been up to overnight.

Laying Down

This cute little elf on the shelf is laying down on a tissue box. He seems to be comfortable on it.

Elf Captivity

It seems that the kitchen became a war zone and unfortunately, Kevin, the elf, has been captured and is being detained in a Coke glass. The elf’s face looks very confused about the reason behind his captivity.

Minion Banana Friends

It looks like this elf found some new little minion friends! This silly elf drew faces on all of the bananas! Look how funny these minion bananas turned out.
