Hey there and welcome to the wonderful world of Elf on the Shelf! I’m so excited that you’re here looking for easy Elf on the Shelf ideas for toddlers. I’m guessing this might be your first time experiencing this fun tradition, but don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!

I’m guessing this might be your first experience with the Elf on the Shelf since you are searching for easy Elf on the Shelf ideas for toddlers.

I bet you didn’t realize how lucky you were last year when Elf on the Shelf poses were the last thing on your mind.

Just kidding. Sort of.

You very well might LOVE the Elf on the Shelf tradition.

Maybe you’ve been waiting impatiently for your toddler to be old enough to appreciate some Elf on the Shelf antics.

Toddlerhood is a good time to start this fun tradition.

Don’t be scared away by the moms that you’ve heard complaining about this Christmas tradition.

If you are prepared ahead of time this holiday season, I promise, the smile on your toddler’s face each morning will make you LOVE your first year of this fun Christmas tradition.

P.S.- My Elf on the Shelf Calendar and Planner can help you to be super organized so that you can have fun with it.

Here’s the deal.

The best part is that your toddler is completely oblivious and doesn’t even KNOW what the Elf on the Shelf is yet.

Don’t fret though, your toddler isn’t too young to get the gist of the Elf on the Shelf.

Last year, my youngest was 2 and I think she actually enjoyed finding the elf each morning even more than her 5 year old sister.

And that’s saying A LOT.

Back to the obliviousness. Take advantage of this, mama!

You might be tempted by Pinterest to do elaborate things with your elf.


You will burn yourself out, and you won’t enjoy it.

Unless you’re supermom, then carry on!

And frankly, your toddler isn’t going to care how much time you the elf has or hasn’t put into it.
