The best Elf on the Shelf ideas from Ballarat | photos

Are you looking for Elf on the Shelf ideas and inspiration?

At the start of December mischievous elves come out to play in homes across the Ballarat.

In the lead-up to Christmas the Elf on the Shelf is a toy sent to children’s homes to report back to Santa on who has been naughty or nice.

While the cheeky little elves have a job to do, it seems they also like ­getting up to mischief along the way.

Is there an elf at your house? We’d love to feature some of the best photos and ideas from around Ballarat.
