When we saw the AMAZING Elf on the Shelf activity calendar shared on the ARTventurers Newcastle and Gateshead Facebook page, we decided to have a go at making our own - as we reckon lots of our mums would find it pretty helpful.


If you've bravely taken on the challenge of Elf on the Shelf this Christmas, you might just appreciate some tips and tricks on how to get through it - which we reckon handy charts like these ones offer.

They include ideas like 'Elf has made himself a pair of wings out of paper' and that 'the other toys have wrapped him up in loo roll' ?

Because, as you probably know, you have to come up wth lots of situs in which to put him in the run up to Christmas, especially if you're starting this early ?

If you're a seasoned 'Elfer', you might just know exactly what plans you've got for the little man.

But if you're a newbie to the whole thing, this might just prove helpful... especially as you get nearer to the 25th!
