Everyone knows how mischievous our magical Christmas elf toys can be – here at Elf for Christmas we hear reports from homes all over the country about the antics those little imps get up to throughout December.
We’ve collected a few of the best creative ideas for elf mischief we’ve heard below. But whatever you do, don’t let your own elf toy see this list – the last thing you want to do is go giving your Christmas elf ideas for his own mischief to find in your home!
These elf mischief ideas should particularly appeal to younger children.
We’ll be sharing more of the tricks and tomfoolery our magical Christmas elf toys get up to throughout December, so make sure you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest for more elf ideas!
Your Christmas Elf arrives
Those magical Christmas elves have been known to turn up in people’s houses in all sorts of funny ways. Maybe yours will be bursting out of a gift box, throwing confetti or glitter everywhere as she does so? Or perhaps he could have climbed down the chimney just like Santa, only for your little one to find him nibbling on a mince pie by the fireplace?
Elf makes some new friends
The other toys have got the tea set out to make your Christmas elf feel right at home with a lovely tea party.
Uh oh! Elf’s found the food cupboard!
Your Christmas elf has only gone and pulled the flour out of Mummy and Daddy’s kitchen cupboard, sprinkled it all over the bench and lain down in it to make snow angels! Naughty elf!
Elf leads a conga
Your Christmas elf is the life and soul of the party with the other toys! He’s leading them all in a conga line across the lounge!
Mummy’s make-up bag gets raided…
The flour angels was just the start of Elf’s mischievous pranks – now she’s gone and got the lipstick out of Mummy’s make-up bag and coloured in everyone’s noses while they were sleeping to look like Rudolf!
Elf builds a toilet roll snowman
That magical Christmas Elf has gone and got all arty, stacking up the toilet rolls and drawing a snowman face, scarf and buttons on them.
Elf’s on a roll… down the stairs!
Uh oh! This is what happens when you play with loo roll at the top of the stairs. Elf’s going to have a sore head after this little accident!
Elf has Christmas all wrapped up
Elf has been practising his present wrapping skills – and he’s only gone and wrapped up the sofa!
A sticky situation…
Elf’s present wrapping has got out of hand – she’s now pulled the sellotape out of the drawer but got herself in a right pickle in the process!
Revving up for a race
Elf’s been getting the other toys involved in his antics again – this time they’ve got all the toy cars lined up ready to race across the kitchen floor!
Cooking up a storm
Your Christmas Elf has been busy in the kitchen again – this time she’s got all the pots and pans out of the cupboards and left them lying all over the place! Honestly, as if Mummy and Daddy haven’t got enough to do on a morning without tidying this lot up!
Weeeee! Elf’s found the tinsel and has hung it up right the way across the ceiling so she can whizz along it like a zip-line! Looks like lots of fun!
Things are getting out of hand with Elf leading the other toys into mischief. Now Elf has gone and got himself in a marshmallow snowball fight with the rest of them! Marshmallows all over the place!
Elf has a midnight snack
That naughty Christmas Elf just can’t stay away from the kitchen it seems. He’s done himself a mischief this time, getting his head stuck escaping from the cereal box.
Elf puts on a Christmas pant-o
That naughty little elf has raided everyone’s knicker drawers and strewn pants all over the Christmas tree! Talk about bare-faced cheek!
The toys have been playing with Elf again – this time they’ve got all of the shoes out of the shoe cupboard and have lined them up for a shoe conga down the hallway.
Baby it’s cold outside
Your Christmas Elf must have been feeling the cold last night – he’s pulled everyone’s scarves out a wrapped himself up nice and warm!
Your Christmas Elf must have realised things have been getting out of hand with the other toys, so to calm things down he’s sat them all down to read a nice Christmas story together.
Elf’s getting arty
Your Christmas Elf has come up with a great idea to keep the kids entertained for a while – he’s printed out a whole load of our Elf For Christmas colouring-in sheets for them! He’s even had a go at a couple himself…
Oh dear. Now that your Christmas Elf has worked out how to operate the printer, he’s going mad with it! He’s only gone and photocopied himself!
All of a tangle
Oh dear, poor little Elf has got himself in a right tangle with the fairy lights! He should really stay away from that Christmas tree…
Your Christmas Elf must have been thirsty – but just look what’s happened!
Christmas movie night
Ahh, how sweet – Elf has got all the toys gathered around the TV to watch their favourite Christmas DVDs together. He’s even handing round the popcorn. Looks like they’ve had loads of fun!
Elf leaves a farewell gift
Elf has had so much fun staying with you in December, but now it’s time for him to go back to the North Pole. But as a thank you for looking after him so well, he’s left you all some lovely Christmas pyjamas to snuggle up in tonight! What a lovely, kind Christmas Elf he is!
