Mom films Elf on the Shelf’s hysterically ‘silly’ antics for TikTok: ‘Elves are real y’all!’

A mom filmed her mischievous Elf on the Shelf for a few days — and the little guy got up to some interesting things! 

TikTok mom @amyjackson9213 documented all of her elf’s shenanigans this holiday. Every kid knows that on Christmas, an elf hides in their home. The elf watches the family and reports back to Santa how they’ve been naughty and nice.

Because the elf flies back to the North Pole every night, you can find it hiding in a new spot every morning. But the most important rule to remember is: never touch an elf, or else its magic will wear off. 

“Elves are real, y’all! I just filmed my silly elf’s antics every day and shared a video of where I found him every morning!” she explained. “Elves love when people share their silly ideas! Then other elves can use them for their children!” 

The mom spotted the elf hiding in a few toilet paper rolls, using gift wrap as stilts, having a bath in a crockpot, vandalizing bananas, stealing candy, falling down the stairs, sleeping in a TP hammock and getting trapped in a bottle. 

Parents loved the video and shared what their own elves were getting up to.

“My Elf on the Shelf made a hot air balloon,” someone commented

“My elf doesn’t have any humor at all. She just hides and doesn’t do anything,” another said

“I better show my elves this,” a user wrote
