You Can Now 'Trap' Elf On The Shelf In Your TV
It must be tricky for all you parents to continuously pull ideas out of your back pockets when it comes to Elf on the Shelf - fair play to you.
If you were running thin, fear no more because we've got you covered. You just need a smart telly and YouTube which we figured is likely because it's 2019 and you've got kids.
So tomorrow morning, maybe the cheeky elf can appear on the TV to surprise your little ones alongside the message: "I hit the wrong button on the remote... how do I get out of here?" Just don't forget to hide the real life little dude.
You just need to go onto the YouTube app and type in 'Elf stuck in TV' and Santa's favourite little helper will appear 'trapped' inside the screen.
Just like that you've got another day ticked off.
If you're the sort of parent who goes hard or goes home you could even wrap your entire kitchen up - literally.
Nichola Mullen-King, 36, came into the kitchen one Monday evening last month to find husband Carl, 34, had started covering the whole room in wrapping paper.
While Nichola was putting their son, six-year-old Max, to bed, Carl had begun on what started as a modest Elf on the Shelf prank, but soon spiralled into a mammoth operation.
Nichola assumed he was joking, but eventually decided to give him a hand. Two hours and six rolls of paper later, the couple - from Newcastle-upon-Tyne - had completely transformed their kitchen into winter wonderland. Admittedly, a very brown one, but impressive nonetheless.
Nichola shared photos of their handiwork to Facebook and the post racked up more than 45k shares and 25k comments. She wrote: "My a******e of a husband came up with the bright idea for us to wrap part of the kitchen for Elf on the Shelf.
"Two hours later and a divorce on the cards, it's done including the fruit, eggs, utensils and chopping board. Idiot even plugged the air freshener back in."
Civil servant Nichola explained that Max hadn't wanted the elf to return this year as he believes the pesky chap 'gets him into trouble with Santa'.
She explained: "But he had a last-minute change of heart on Saturday which prompted Carl to think outside of the box on the spot. I assumed Carl was joking when he said lets wrap the whole kitchen.
"But after reading Max a book and putting him to bed, he had started and asked me for a hand. I couldn't stop laughing but we were both panicking in case the noise would wake Max up and I joked a divorce was on the cards if he continued to tell me to 'shh'.
"Max's reaction in the morning was brilliant - he couldn't believe it! He was absolutely flabbergasted and said, 'Why do I always get the naughty Elf?'"
