- The Elf on the Shelf Doll
- Cardstock or paper (this is the best cardstock which is perfect for your Elf printables)
- Printer (Low-cost pick)
- Honk If You Love Elves Printable Sign
- A car (preferably your own – wink!)
It’s pretty easy to pull off this prank. The hardest part will be your children trying to find Elf on the Shelf’s hiding spot.
Setting the Prank:
To execute this funny Elf on the Shelf idea, start by buckling your Elf into the car. Find an extra seat the the car. This elf is ready to roll. If you lack extra seats, secure him to the rearview mirror or the front dashboard. To add an extra touch of magic, consider decorating the car with Christmas car props like a car reindeer, festive garland, a lot of balloons, and if you are quite brave – glitter! (We won’t blame you if you skip the messy glitter.)
Download our specially designed “Honk if You Love Elves” signs and print them out. These signs are adorned with a festive heart and bold letters that are bound to catch the attention of anyone nearby. Once printed, it’s time to place the signs on the car windows,
Hang your Honk If You Love Elves signs in on the windows ensuring they’re visible from all angles.. These printable Elf props come in two sizes. Elf-sized and Human Sized. Mix it up and use a lot of Elf signs. In fact, the louder you all with your sign placement the more embarrassing the car ride. Just make sure you don’t have too many signs in blind spots. Also, leave a clear opening by the window where your teen sits. You don’t want to block their face for this car ride.
Now that your Hilarious Elf on the Shelf idea is staged, it’s time to go to bed. Before you do, go to the bathroom mirror and practice your wave. You will be getting a lot of honks tomorrow morning. Make it a regal wave like Princess Diana (know your worth, mama) or it a very aggressive and over-the-top wave causing a little added humiliation to your children’s car ride. This is your time to shine mama – own it! Now go to bed. It’s going to be a busy day with the extra excitement you have to give this occasion.
In the morning, after the rooster crows, your child will likely be really upset they cannot find their elf. Absorb the desperation. Take a deep breath. You are about the save the day. You can guide them with questions like “Did you check outside,” “Go put your backpack in the car,” or “I think I left my sunglasses in the car, please go grab them?” Get creative with your ideas to get your child to the car. Or you can just be at a total loss and them them go for a while without finding their North Pole friend until it’s time for your road trip.

What is Elf on the Shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and an elf doll. The book is poetic and in rhyme sharing the purpose of the Elf’s visits. The Elf visits each Thanksgiving. He/She goes and returns from the North Pole each evening. Every morning he can be found in a new location in the house. The Elf has been found in the refrigerator, fishing in the toilet, writing messages on the mirror, or hanging from the lights. It is VERY IMPORTANT, that the Elf is not touched each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. The elves return to their home (Santa’s North Pole Work shop) every Christmas Eve. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
