With the holiday season quickly approaching our minds are cluttered with gift-prep, menu making, card coordinating, decorating, and keeping warm and cozy—a lot goes into the making of the most wonderful time of the year. In the spirit of keeping up with tradition, we can imagine your Elf on the Shelf has found its way out of the attic and is looking for new and inventive places to surprise your children. (According to the Elf on a Shelf official website, your scout should be returning between November 24th and December 1st.)  But, who really has time to top all of your hiding spots from last year? That’s why we gathered some fun and easy Elf on the Shelf ideas, so you don’t have to put much thought into this one. Here are some fun locations to stash your Elf on a Shelf after he makes his nightly return from the North Pole.
