Our Creative Elf On The Shelf Ideas Using Magnets

It’s that time of the year again, and Santa’s elf is out to check and report on who’s been naughty and nice…

Part of what makes Christmas so special is all of the traditions that come with it. Cue the smiley Elf on the Shelf.  As a parent, there are many ways to get involved with elf on the shelf – and we have many to show you based on our very own elf’s journey. Our elf has been equipped with his very own magnets, leading to all sorts of creative spots in the house!

To get started…

We have equipped our elf with our Adhesive 20mm dia x 1.5mm N42 Neodymium Magnet – 2kg Pull

As you can see, the magnets are neatly adhered to the elf’s hands, and now it’s ready to get into some creative spots!

Here’s how we’ve managed to capture his journey around the home and the mischief he has been up to:


Kitchen – Opening The Fridge

Our magnets provide a secure hold and allow the elf to be easily moved around anywhere on the fridge. It looks like our elf was hungry during it’s scout mission, and he’s managed to get into the fridge!


Home Office – Hanging On The Office Cabinet

As most office cabinets are made of steel, our magnets provide an easy attraction and hold the elf securely in place. It looks like our elf has been up to mischief again, this time he’s got into the home office and decided to mess with the filing!


Living Room – Hanging From A Photo Wire

Our Magnetic Photo Wires provide a great display solution for your Christmas cards, and what’s more, the elf can hang on the wire too using it’s magnets. Our elf has managed to get into the living room and he’s decided it would be a good idea to climb up and mess with our Christmas cards!


Bedroom – Hanging From The Bed

Steel bed frames provide another great surface for our elf to hang from. Now our elf has managed to make his way into the bedroom, and he’s managed to get at the presents in our stocking!

Our stocking is hanging from our Neodymium Swivel Hook Magnet – for more convenient ways to hang your decorations using magnets this Christmas, head over to our decorations blog post – How to Hang Christmas Decorations with Magnets


Radiator – Hanging Against A Radiator

Our elf has been captured by toy soldiers and magnetically attached to the radiator. This could be a punishment for being naughty and playing tricks all throughout December! (Please ensure the radiator is turned off in this example to avoid potential burns and the magnets partially de-magnetising from heat exposure.)

Whiteboard – Hanging on a Naughty or Nice Chart

Throughout December, track your children’s homework, chores and general behaviour with a magnetic naughty or nice chart. Our elf is overseeing Kyle’s and Megan’s chart to ensure they are behaving in the run up to Christmas!
