100 + Cute Elf On The Shelf Names

During the holiday season, families read the book, ‘The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition” by Carol V. Aebersold and Chanda A. Bell. The book comes with a Scout Elf doll. Families get to pick a name for their new elf friend, who hides in fun places around the house.

Elf on the shelf watches over children during the day, and when the kids are asleep, they fly to Santa and report if the kids are good or bad. The elves return home by the morning and hide again for the kids to come find when they wake up.

Elf on The Shelf Details

Elf on the Shelf is a way to help kids stay on their best behavior during the holiday season. The story explains that each night, the Scout Elf flies to the North Pole and reports to Santa so he can keep track of his “Nice List.” Parents will move the elf around the home each day from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve.

The elf is meant to be in a place where they can watch the children and know if they are being naughty or nice. Don’t be afraid to get creative and have fun with placing your elf! You can decorate so that it appears that the elf is doing an activity, like climbing a bookshelf or sledding down the banister.
