More Fun with Apple the Elf (on the Shelf!)

We introduced Elf on the Shelf to our household about two years ago and this year is probably the most fun we’ve had with it because Sadie is SO into it. I swear four is the perfect age for stuff like this. She wakes up every morning immediately telling Dave and I that we have to look for Apple. (Our elf – her name is Apple.)

I thought I’d share some more of the shenanigans that Apple the Elf has gotten herself into so far this year! I know some parents really dislike the whole Elf on the Shelf thing but I love it!

Click here for the first few days of Elf on the Shelf.

Day 13: Mommy forgot!

This marks the first night that I forgot to move the elf! Sadie woke up and as she was in the bathroom I remembered and RAN downstairs to move it. Phew. Shoved Apple in the fridge door and all was well.

Day 14: A Marshmallow Bath!

Apple the Elf felt a bath was in order and obviously as an elf she would take a marshmallow bath! With some candy canes added for a nice minty scent.

Day 15: In the Shoes!

To keep warm, Apple snuggled herself into some of our shoes!

Day 16: Googly Eyes

Oh, Apple! She took some googly eyes that we had and stuck them on our pictures! And herself!

Day 17: Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?

(This was one of my favorites.) Our elf built a snowman out of toilet paper rolls and Q-tips! Sadie thought it was SO funny!

Day 18: On Top of the Tree

Apple the Elf was up high on top of our tree!! Sadie couldn’t believe she got up there – she was so high up that Daddy had to get her down for us.

Day 19: Covered in Band-Aids

Sadie fell outside of school and scraped up her knee which required a band-aid when we got home. Apple wanted to have a band-aid too so the next morning we found her covered in them! Sadie was actually annoyed that Apple the Elf was “messing with our stuff!” Haha!

Day 20: Pizza Party!

Thanks to this fun little printable, Apple brought Sadie a pizza pie all the way from the North Pole!

Follow this year’s elf shenanigans on Instagram with the hashtag #appletheelf2016. There are also some under #appletheelf but I guess someone else named their elf Apple so some posts aren’t mine.

  2. The toilet paper snowman was my favorite! I’m not “against” the Elf, I just don’t want to have to remember to do it myself…haha. So I’ve straight up refused it for several years in a row. If I can just hold out a little longer!
