He sees you when you're sleeping; he knows when you're awake. We're talking about Elf On The Shelf, of course, the little guy (or girl) who plays Santa's proxy in the days leading up to Christmas to make sure kids are being good. The problem is, Elf On The Shelf is supposed to move around the house every single day. That's 24 days of original and creative poses. Before you give up and just start sticking Elfie in different spots on your tree every day, here are 34 ideas to try.

1. ELF ON THE SHELF ENCOUNTERS ELSA.

2. ELF ON THE SHELF MESSES WITH THE COPIER AT WORK.

3. ELF ON THE SHELF TAKES A BATH.

4. ELF ON THE SHELF CELEBRATES THE FORCE AWAKENS ...
