Have Christmas elves invaded your house with the intention of creating some mischief? This year, create a souvenir photo album featuring their best pranks and take the opportunity to inspire them with five mischievous ideas. Your kids will love it!
Prank 1: Roadblock
Add some fun to your kids’ morning by “trapping” them inside their own room. It’s easy to do: get some coloured ribbon and use some adhesive tape to cover up their doorway while they’re sleeping. Don’t forget the most important detail: a few elf fingerprints on the wall to leave a clue. Before your kids wake up, get your camera ready to immortalize the scene.
Prank 2: The food is watching
Christmas elves love food, but they also love playing with their food. With a Sharpie pen and plastic eyes, transform everything in the kitchen and fridge into hilarious characters. Perfect to add some life to your pantry and make your kids laugh.
Prank 3: A redecorated Christmas tree
Your Christmas tree has been carefully decorated? No wonder it’s the perfect target for mischievous elves who want to redecorate it in their own way. Toilet paper, balloons and even underwear, find absurd objects for the elves to use to add their own touch to your tree overnight. You can also add an elf near the tree, whether he’s climbing to the top or using a zip line to flee the scene, use your imagination and immortalize the moment in your photobook.
Prank 4: Elf and friends
After clowning around during the night in your house, the Christmas elves have gotten to know your home’s residents (teddy bears, toys, trinkets…). It’s therefore quite possible they’ll end up surrounded by their new pals to tell stories, go sledding or simply just to hang out for fun.
Prank 5: Homemade crafts
To keep occupied, naughty elves love playing pranks, but they also love to do arts and crafts. Skyscrapers made of books to climb the Christmas tree, wooden block constructions, marshmallow pyramids… anything to keep their minds and hands occupied.
Always immortalize your elves’ shenanigans. Then you can pick your best photos and organize them into a personalized photo album of your children’s favourite pranks with dates and comments. A great way to add some punch to your Holiday album.
The legend of the elves
You’ve seen them on store shelves but you don’t really know the story behind the elves? Here it is.
Travelling directly from the North Pole, small Christmas elves invade our homes at the beginning of December after they’ve helped Santa build his toys. Pranks, mischief, shenanigans, they’ve got more than one trick up their sleeve to amuse themselves. It’s not easy to catch these little trouble-makers since they only operate during the night.
To catch them, lure them out by appealing to their sweet tooth (chocolate, cookies…). Once you’ve caught them, all you need to do is set them by the Christmas tree so they can catch a ride back with Santa when he visits you on December 24.
