I just bought Elf on the Shelf for my kids after hearing about so much hype! Ive seen a few ideas as to where my kids may wake up to see him in the morning.  Do you have any???  Let's share ideas here.

One of my favorites so far is for the trouble maker elf, writing on the bathroom mirror, "Elf was here" in either toothpaste or lip stick!  Too funny!

 funny you posted this today.. i just took out our elf and placed it on the tree! lol.. cant wait for  my daughter to get up and see her.. by the way, I bought an elf at a craft store and dress it up as a girl with felt in different colors, I change her dress and tell my daughter she must have gone home to santa told him how you behaved and changed.. lol.. keeps her in check!

I place "Lucy" (thats what she named her) in different places, but usually facing places my daughter frequents like the livingroom.

I bought a random elf last Christmas (it was $1 and I figured it work just as well lol) and DS named it Warnis. Warnis dyed the milk green. He squeezed toothpaste out...he drank syrup through a straw sticking out of the bottle while hanging upside down out of a cabinet..

here is my Elf on the Shelf pinterest board with a bunch of ideas :)

In one of my other groups a mom shared that their elf made a snow angel in flour in the kitchen. I thought that was cute =)

Way cute ideas!  We haven't done Elf on the Shelf.  We probably should, but with everything else we do for the holidays, I am just reluctant to add something else.
