If you are running out of Elf on a Shelf ideas or just looking for some new ones here are some of the simplest ideas I could find.  Let me know what you favorite ones are.

If you are new to the Elf game: "The magical Scout Elves help Santa manage his naughty and nice lists by taking note of a family’s Christmas adventures, and reporting back to Santa at the North Pole nightly," according to the official Elf on the Shelf website. "Each morning, the Scout Elf returns to its family and perches in a new spot, waiting for someone to spot them."  Each morning, your child awakens to find the family's personal elf in a new place, often doing something funny or mischievous.  Here are some ideas of what the elf can be doing:
