11 new Elf on the Shelf accessories to make parents’ lives easier this holiday

It may seem like Christmas is ages away, but if your family welcomes an Elf on the Shelf into your home over the holidays, it won’t be long until a Scout Elf is back in the house delighting your kids and reporting back to Santa at the North Pole each night.

In past years, our elves, Jingle and Garland, have made snow angels with flour on our kitchen counter, painted my kids’ noses red while they were asleep and stolen pairs of underwear to decorate our Christmas tree.


In our home last year, our Scout Elves arrived a bit later than normal, wearing Hawaiian shirts and announcing they’d been vacationing in Hawaii. Aloha!Terri Peters at TODAY Parents

Recently, my 8-year-old daughter reminded me the elves usually arrive on December 1, but were late last year because they’d been “vacationing in Hawaii.” Whoops. Luckily, those tricky little elves showed up in Hawaiian shirts with leis. Their grand entrance made both kids forget that Jingle and Garland arrived later than normal.

This year, the kids are already looking forward to the ways their Scout Elves will surprise them each morning. Thankfully, The Elf on the Shelf has launched a new line of crafts, props and clothing.

From a Scout Elves at Play Balloon Ride to Claus Couture — a line of cute dresses, costumes and outdoor wear for Scout Elves — we’ve rounded up the newest products guaranteed to get your kids and your elves in the holiday spirit just in time for Scout Elf Return Week.

So get ready, Elfin’ parents. It won’t be long until the Scout Elves are stealing the best gifts and causing a bit of chaos in your homes.
