Get your reindeer in a row! The elf will be back before you know it.
The Elf on the Shelf always makes the countdown to Christmas brighter and, with more of us at home this year, we'll be looking forward to this tradition more than ever. To help make your elf's visit during December even more memorable, we've rounded up some of our favorite accessories to incorporate throughout your home. A few are brand new this season, including a North Pole Advent Train and a special cookie plate for Santa. Others are favorites from past years that can be used in all sorts of creative situations. There are also a few outfits to help set the scene, as well as props—a cookie baking set, movie theater kiosk, and pizza box—that can also inspire the day's activities for your own family.
If you're starting the tradition for the first time this year, be sure to check out our ideas for elf names, favorite Elf on the Shelf clothes, and funny ideas that will keep kids laughing. We've also outlined everything you'll need to know to get started. If it isn't your first visit from your Scout Elf, take a look at these clever setups for your Elf on the Shelf's return. Here's hoping to make it onto the nice list!
