Dollar Tree Elf on the Shelf Ideas

Here is a video where I show you how I found these items in the Dollar Tree store and what they look like once we get them home. This should help you see how we use these ideas for Elf on the Shelf.

So, I have to ask…. do you have an elf this year? If not you totally need to!

We have two, one girl and one boy. The task of naming is daunting. All of my boys wanted to name them something different. So it was either compromise or have an elf with a really long name. We went with the names Jack and Diane.  I know, we’re so clever!

Naming your elf is the initiation of all of the wonder that comes along with Elf on The Shelf. It’s what starts the magic and the fun, so to speak. Plus the kids really love doing this!

So, are you needing name ideas? If so then look no further! Check out these 80 cute Elf on the Shelf names to help you decide and get your creative naming juices going. We have a list of girl names and a list of boy names. Ready?
