Nico the Elf Travels with Style to the Zoo

By Tina Auten, Staff Writer

For many children and adults, the Elf on the Shelf has provided holiday magic and entertainment during the past several weeks as he’s watched over families and reported “naughty or nice” behavior back to Santa each night.  Magically moving around the house, the Elf often surprises children with his inventive and humorous antics.  With just five days until Christmas, some of you might be running out of creative steam at night after the kids have gone to bed and the Elf needs to move.  Below (in the gallery) are five fun and creative ideas for your Elf before he goes back to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.

Zip-line Elf (see gallery) – Zipping his way across the room provides the perfect vantage point to keep a watchful eye on his family. 

Scrabble Elf (see gallery) – Spelling out a message from Santa can inspire the kids to play “nice” for mom.

Sledding Elf (see gallery) – A little recreation on a candy cane sled with marshmallow snow is sure to delight everyone in the house.

Siesta Elf (see gallery) – Even the Elf on the Shelf needs a break during the hectic holiday season.  Here, he enjoys time in the hammock with a cold beverage.

Conductor Elf (see gallery) – Riding the train around the Christmas tree is a great way for your Elf to keep curious eyes away from gifts.
