For those of you, like me, who have never heard of Elf On The Shelf, it has become a Christmas time tradition, where a special little scout is sent to your home from the North Pole to make sure kids are behaving themselves. The Christmas elf can be hidden anywhere around the house, keeping a careful eye on your little ones, before returning at night to the North Pole to make their reports on who has been naughty or nice.

Now, Elf On The Shelf ideas can be a lot of fun for adults too, as they come up with ever more creative places to hide the Elf, as well as play around with some hilarious positions and scenarios in full Christmas spirit. We here at Bored Panda have rounded up our favorite examples of people taking the funny Elf On The Shelf game to the next level, and we are sure you'll find them as amusing as we did! Scroll down below to check the hilarious Christmas decorations out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
